432 meter is a fantastic height !!! I hope that this tower will have at least 100 REAL FLOORS.

I trust they will be, after all, building tall and thin is nothing new. Dubai is building a ton of thin tall towers even as we speak .... well, actually as we write

very beautiful, historic buildings that are unique to New York, demolished for a soul-less glass box...good one America.
I dont mind the building, but the tower could of still gone up without removing the beautuful buildings below - they just keep the facades.

It's not like there's no other building similar to the ones demolished for this building. There are plenty if you take a walk around the area.

I agree. Unfortunately, in the US, there is no respect for the past. Everything is motivated solely by money.

I guest I'm the only one, who doesn't see anything funny, about that picture. Well other then that fact, that it's been posted on this page 3 times.

can you not see the animation, or do you not have a sense of humor?

You sir, have just won SkyscraperCity poster of the month (and it's the 1st, no less!)

If you will allow me too thought, it'd be better if you slowed the animation down just a bit
