It's actually 1307 feet over the lowest entrance, so yes, it has passed 1300 oficially.

It looks even more like the North Tower in the rendering on the right. I like it. But it still would look a million times better with the enclosure, or even with the lattice antenna.

You forgot to add the 6 feet for the final height of 1374 feet, not 1368 feet as it used to be

Empire State's still the best building in New York now although it was completed in 1931.

Probably would have been a better idea to not start the thread with provocative statements, but hopefully this thread can stay on topic.

Can someone repost the most recent pictures? I'm not very skilled at posting images.
