I am guessing he meant the Empire state building, not the Statue of Liberty.

Looking at that comparison, what blows my mind is that humans can walk around inside the Statue of Libertys' head!

I have to be light on you, but, your first mistake was, the statue of liberty is not a building, secondly, there are hundreds of buildings in Manhattan taller than the statue of liberty. The statue of liberty wasn't even the tallest thing in NYC when it was built in the 1800s.

Steel erection has slowed down a little bit in the last two months due to the weather. They reached the 48th floor in mid-November. So only 6 floors in the last two months. That's to be expected.

Jesus Christ!
Iím sorry if Iím rude but regarding that you have posted almost 4000 times in this forum and joined in 2003, is unbelievable that you make this kind of questions.
Please check on the thread or go to google.com and write New York City then click on images or go to skyscrapercity.com and see the diagrams of NYC there youíll see that there are hundreds of buildings taller than the Statue of liberty.
