1. American Radiator Building (see jayhawker's post)
2. Woolworth
3. Chrysler

I don't think modern skyscrapers are nearly as elegant or beautiful as the pre-war skyscrapers, but if I had to pick a more recent building, I'd probably choose the William Beaver House for its unique color scheme:


For modern supertalls, probably the New York Times Tower

By the way, did Wikileaks disclose the messages it pretended to have?

Yep, all of the leaked cables are online, so there was no "pretending."

Voted as one of the more hideous buildings in Manhattan

Chrysler
Citigroup
AIG
Empire State
8 Spruce St
BoA
Woolworth

Yeah, it is pretty godawful, but the colors are just so garish that I can't help but like it. It's, well, a lot more memorable than all the pale blue glass boxes lately. I'm glad it's unique though, as any more would be a visual atrocity.

I would have liked it better with bright red features instead of yellow ones.

Everything! Including SoHo,

Upper West Side

Greenwich Village

The Flat Iron Building

The old Penn Station RIP




replaced with this hideous rabbit ward "One entered the city like a god; one scuttles in now like a rat"


The Chrysler Building


The Empire State Building


and the potter building

one of the earliest skyscrapers, and one of the last survivors of park row.
