Right, because the magnitude of glass skyscrapers in Midtown and Downtown scream "1930's". Other countries might have height on us, but nothing will ever come close to the architectural diversity and DENSITY this city has worked toward over the last 100 years. Take a walk.

Be calm, and ignore him. He posted the same rubbish in the 440 Park Avenu thread and it got deleted. Dont feed him.

I believe that the height should have been roof height 1776 and spire pinnacle 2013 for the year it is being completed...just my opinion.

The person who posted about NYC's skyline looking dated is dead right. And it's not a bad thing. It's like London or Paris, where a lot of the neighbourhoods look dated. Because they are. Cities grow and thrive during periods of rapid growth and dominance. For London and Paris these periods were during the 19th century, and for New York it was the 20th. As a monument to the 20th century New York will always be fantastic.

That one really shows how tall this is getting. I can't wait for a similar shot with the spire hidden when it's finished.
