SMCYB, are you from New York by any chance? I notice over the years that there seem to be real self-esteem issues with people there constantly needing to make comparisons to other cities.

I did not take his comment to be putting down other cities. He was just showing the scale of NYC. My parents currently live fort wayne IN. It has a decent downtown area and the city as a whole is a nice place to live if you want a slower lifestyle than what Manhattan offers. And yes Flatiron by itself is way more impressive than Fort Wayne. In fact there is maybe only 10-15 cities in the US that have a downtown as impressive as Flatiron itself.

According to our fellow forumers 45E22nd has T/O!

Also, New York has now 70 towers over 200m completed and T/O, respectively. Another 20 are U/C and over a dozen is in prep. So by 2020 we'll have our 100.

That is actually still quite unimaginable, but this is already impressive.

Wow never realized it would look that imposing from Jersey City, but yeah there isn't anything tall in between.

for me personally this tower has the best view in town. Its situated between midtown and downtown and due to being the biggest tower in its area has unobstructed views of all of the major highrise clusters (Midtown, Downtown, Jersey City, D town Brooklyn, and LIC)

Are 30 Park, 56 leonard, 4 and 3 wtc on the same street? If yes, it should form a pretty awesome canyon right there
