I think the actual top floor is the 7th "floor" from the top.

No the mechanical floors will not have windows. They have a "drum" surrounding the mechanical equipment but the are open.

Anyone know how high this building 'could' have been?

I mean disregarding economics and air rights or whatever made them decide to build it this specific height.

With this small a footprint design. How high could it have been built safely?

Epic shot of manhattan skyline.

I recently rewatched the classic muvi " when Harry met Sally" (1989) . H and . S shared a ride from chicago lakeshore drive into manhattan after graduation.

Chicago skyline remains almost unchanged since then but nyc skyline totally changed. Today nyc skyline is very impressive, refreshing, full of energy but nyc skyline in 80s (with midtown dominated by esb, xler and lower manhattan topped by wtc twin towers) was really sweet
