The crown of the US Bank Tower in Los Angeles (formerly Library Tower) has always stood out to me. I liked better without the US Bank logo on top though.

40 Wall Street

The crown has apparently oxidized over the years like the Statue of Liberty.

It was always intended that the building's copper clad crown would develop its current green-like patina

I love the art deco crowns like the one of Chrysler.
This classic design in Amsterdam is quite nice as well IMO.
