Wow that last pic is amazing. Here it looks much taller and more modern then in most pics. Maybe as a result of the brickstone buildings dominating the street walls. The fog gives the picture a nice atmosphere, an the fully loaded sidewalk and road makes the image complete: This is big town big time!

When you´re talking about the official height of this building, you always include the spire. But with building's with an antenna like Empire State, Conde Nast and the late World Trade center you never take that into the official height. Is it just a coincidence, or is it a difference between a spire and an antenna? If so, why is the spire included when you talk about the height and not the antenna?

This must be an icon tower... it's incredible!!!

I love it... very powerful building, very effective design all around, including a perfectly centered and sized spire.

BofA is creeping in behind Conde Nast too.

I like the towers impact, and when the crown is completed and lit, it will illuminate the spire better, let alone the whole building.

Not to stir up shit but you should at least give Derek some credit for those. Those shots are rather nice btw. Wired New York will probably contribute way more U/C Shots than SSC sadly in the near future since were losing the incredible eye of the FISH in the next few months.

I'm surprised this tower doesn't have more of an impact on the skyline. It needed to be taller to be a little more distinct. In some of the photos it is quite hard to even pick it out if you aren't looking for it.

Very nice tower just wished for another 100 feet even.
