I thought 432 park avenue is thin but this one is fragile like a toothpick...

It might be thin, but it'll be far from fragile. Wepre talking about 16 000 psi concrete here

Can you lads imagine this area when 31 W 57th, 16 W 57th, and the Park Lane are added into the equation. I guarantee, moreover, that there's a lot more to come.

Not really. From the newest renders it looks like the crown of Steinway is a solid crown, which means that it is counted towards roof height

Yes, I consider crowns to be part of roof height count. It is architecturally part of the design, afterall.
