The tallest I've seen (and been in ) is the Sears Tower !! When I got in front of it I couldn't believe that I was there...I really thought that I was in a movie or something...it's only when looking at the pics after that I believed I was there ... lol

I have been to them numerous time when they were up, and one of my last looks of them was when I was on the ESB looking to the Twins just four days before they were destroyed as well as seeing the first plane hitting them from the Throgs Neck Br.
