Then I'm sure you must have wondered why the PA didn't listen to the people of this City... It still annoys me very much.

No problem. I'm not mad anymore. When bullies shouted at me that I'm a troll I didn't care, because it were just bullies, but I respect you and when somebody who I respect just casts a negative judgement on me without giving me a fair trial, it hurts. I'm a brutalist and everybody who looks in the ugly skyscrapers thread in Architecture or in the Rate the Talls section can clearly see it. Again I'm telling you that if you have a problem with something I do, let me know via PM. If possible I will gladly search for compromises, just as I did when I started to put a bold, purple sign about roof height in my diagrams.

Btw, as to diagrams, somebody plz tell me at which floor we are now at?

Technically from a Longitudinal and World Time perspective you would be correct.

The British Empire can be thanked for that.

Man up bud. It's a stupid web forum. It's not real life. Who cares what anyone says about you. Have them meet you at a coffee bar and repeat what they said face to face.

I love New York it's the best city in the world and deserves to call itself "The capital of the world" but I want to see at least ONE Megatall skycraper. I think that would have been a discussion around the world that N.Y is back for real.
NYC or the US doesn't have to prove anything unlike other developing cities and nations who only care about artificial status. Let the Arabs show off with their 2000 ft scrapers using the West's oil money and the commies in China can do the same with American money. That's right. America is developing China. We build based on economic common sense not to prove we have bigger dicks.

Like someone else said, there are many supertalls planned for NYC. There are trillions of dollars on the sidelines in America waiting for our buffoon president to take a hike. Don't worry yourself too much about NY falling behind

The 102nd floor is about 27 feet high, and the 103rd is about 20 feet. Hard to believe they'll go 47 feet on the next jump.

27 feet is pretty consistent with their typical height increases.

For a brutalist it is absolutely natural to like an exposed antenna more than a fancy spire. Brutalism is not trolling, it's a normal architectural style. If it were just a one man trolling attempt they wouldn't bother giving it a name and a place in the history of architecture. Just because it's less popular than for example Art Deco doesn't mean it is trolling. Everybody who has read my posts in this forum must know that I'm a brutalist. My feelings really got hurt by what he said.

If that's the case, then why are you obsessed with an outdated form of measurement (roof height) anyway? Wouldn't it be better to be an advocate of pinnacle or height to tip?

I think this is a very important point.

Dubai might have the tallest pointy thing in the world right now. Who cares? The city is mind-numbingly sterile.

NYC offers far more than 'just' tall buildings, but even if you are just talking about tall buildings, NYC is a top world destination boasting the world's most famous and interesting tall cityscape.
