Love this building..said it a million times I know. I think it's the best looking tall building in Chicago - until the Spire.

No, he doesn't. Those are two different NBC towers in two different cities.

As a "future architect" you would think u would know better. 30 Rock is actually the GE building and it was build in 1933, so hell no Adrian Smith did not design it, are you on drugs?

No, but you have a good eye to pick up the similarities. You are thinking of Raymond Hood's old RCA building at Rockefeller Center in Midtown (Manhattan) (now the GE Building):

Smith was no doubt influenced by this tower when he designed NBC - that is what I meant by "overtly historical" in my post above:

Here is NBC, with Trump to the center left:

Gotta say that NBC looks kinda chunky next to RCA/GE!

Haha It certainly is. We in Chicago already had about 4" on the ground, but we are expected to get another 12" tonight! Not ideal "flying in a helicopter carrying large objects that can easily sway" weather!!!
