Rinky dinky? The NYT building spire is rinky dinky, this one looks a lot thicker.

The pic above posted by MDguy shows that the steel for the floorplates has reached the height of the Verizon Building, which makes it about 630ft/192m tall. Wow, unbelievable that it now makes it just over 1/2 way mark to the final height!

We know the spire will reach 1,200ft, but does anyone know how high 1 Bryant Park will reach to the very tip of the glass?

Speaking of spires, I think it is very proportionate to the main tower component. Not "rinky dink" at all.

Yes, exactly right ZZ-II - thanks (BTW I just located that it will be 288m to the tip of the glass after doing extensive searches on the net. LOL ).

So 288m/945ft

I think shes talking about the exposed steel to the left of the building, in which case, its the Verizon building. Verizon is L shaped, so it gives the appearance from that angle that 2 buildings are being recladded.
