An enlargment (and straighten out) of this picture showing NY big 3. Because it is taken at about the roof height and from a far away distance, it shows pretty well how are they compared in height

Amazing pictures ! You can see most of Manhattan and it's so clear which are the three kings of the skyline.

Holy shit. This thing is starting to make the ESB look like a dwarf! Phenomenal. After over 80 years of dominating Midtown. One thing will never change though. No matter how much taller buildings may grow, the ESB will always be the king and ultimate symbol of New York

I agree. The ESB has an extraordinary classic grandeur.

The Park Lane and 111 W 57th will balance out 432 and Nordstrom.

Yea, the Empire State will be King in my book and will continue to be the most iconic no matter what towers surpasses it.
