definitely one of the best-looking towers in the world, and look better than the Burj Dubai imo.

Name one Trumps project that didn't go belly up before that show, I can't name any. Lets just say he owes more money then his worth, he might say otherwise.
You must be awfully young to think that Trump isn't the best-known developer in the country and he has been for many years - look how long he's had casinos in Atlantic City. It's true he went bankrupt many years ago, but the guy was well known long before that stupid TV show made the airwaves.

I have counted 24 floors above hotel setback(with the core). So 76th floor is UC. Probably 274 meters high.

I read alot of business magazine and there's Forbes top 100 developers you can check it out on there website. Oh and you must be pretty dumb if you believe everything that comes out of TRUMPS mouth lol. Your making me laugh and cry at the same time. Trump is the biggest Develope in NYC. Not only is that false it's a out right lie.

Taken from the East end of Ridgeland Station on the Green line

Just under 9 miles - this is on 6x zoom, and then cropped.
The station in the foreground (Austin) is under 1/2 mile away.
