If you're not fond of the billionaire's row needles, there's Hudson Yards under construction, One Vanderbilt coming soon, things in Lower Manhattan, lots of supertalls all in a different style. It's ridiculous to complain.

You are absolutely right in two points there.
The first picture of NY.. yeah.. it's a horrible NY. That hopefully will never exist except in your nightmarish version xD.
The second picture.. yeah.. it was a beautiful NY.

And still is! Specially with this tower!!

Not only NY, the world needs more such amazing buildings! This is an very good example for a "new" art deco style, imo with character and soul. It's like a giant sculpture for me

Seriously, not to mention the outer boroughs as well!

Plus Nordstrom Tower is not that skinny, it's hard to imagine how imposing that building will be!

Sounds like you're just embarrassingly ignorant towards modern architecture.

Just maybe add, that personally I find this new trend of skinny supertalls absolutely fabolous. It's such a modern concept and really beautiful done. My only complain is that they are being built only in NYC, they should be built in other cities as well.

I am older than most of the posters here and you would think I would be the one nostalgic for the old masonry Art Deco skyscrapers of the early 20th Century.

I am not.

We are living in the 21st Century and building technology ... and costs ... are different today then they were 85 years ago. Our aesthetic has evolved as well.

Remember: traditionalists in Paris were outraged when the Eiffel Tower was built. Architecture critics were appalled when the Monadnock Block was built in Chicago.

New York City is NOT a living history museum - like Colonial Williamsburg - frozen in the mid 20th Century.

Your opinion is just as valid (no more, no less) than anyone of any age with any measurable amount of knowledge of the history of architecture. I don't say that to be demeaning in any way... just to point out that all opinions matter as long as they are informed.

Our aesthetic (speaking of the meaning of the word in terms of the opinions of the masses as a whole) generally changes as a result of those with the means and wherewithal to build new buildings and thus have an influence over the opinions of those who don't have such means. Thought leaders are often those with the ability to produce, and producing large buildings takes a lot of money. So there are only a few who have the ability to do so, resulting in a handful of people being the ones who put their works out there visibly to the public.

I personally wish we had more classical architecture in this modern age, not less, and I too am probably older than most of the posters here.

This building will be a classical in the future. You just have to wait a while
Personally, I like the evolvement of styles over time. It expresses a certain time period and gives depth to a city.

This building is already classical and it's not even built yet. It's a great combination of design and engineering.

Wow, eagle eyes with the catch there.

Also of note: One57's transmitter array is absolutely atrocious. I have to think the temptation will be very high for JDS to lease out the upper mechanical floors to broadcasters. Hopefully they're satisfied with their massive condo sales, or at the very least, incorporate any antennae invisibly into the crown.

New York is flashy,impressive...with an indubitable lack of class.
For example,Michigan avenue is clean,harmonious,with normal people when the fifth avenue looks like the Champs Elysées in Paris:a trashy place for cheap tourists with backpacks and sandals.
Also,Chicago is more airy,the architecture more homogeneous,the city planning more inflexible.
However,don't get me wrong:i trully love New York as and for what it is;a big mess,brilliant and sophisticated,but a mess!
