Actually, to hell with all the haters, I like this idea. Something Romanesque that proclaims the triumph of Western Civilization. Hell yeah.

He's from London. The place that erects a giant "gherkin". A place that puts up a Ferris wheel across from their Government Buildings, probably expects NY to erect a massive tacky Apple in the middle of Central Park or something, heh. j/k.

How about a neo-Gothic mile high tower right in the center. What could be more American, and New York, than that? 360° park views, and an Eiffel like center piece for the world.
