I could only sit through the first 15 minutes of it, so unfortunately I don't get the reference. But here's a dancing banana.

Bananas! In Pajamas!

Are walking down the stairs!

So, what is the internal fire-proofing like? I assume that there is an inner core?

How many sets of fire stairs are there? Do they have any other escape mechanisms?

No words can describe the beauty of this engineering marvel, or the beauty of the view from inside the building.

Uh somehow my post lacks any kind of context, sorry for that. What I mean is, tall buildings (highrises of any height) on the other side of the Hudson in... Weehawken is it?

I see. Well, except for jersey City, all the cities along jerseys gold coast at the Hudson river are small cities with 12k-53k inhabitants. There is not really the need for highrises there. I was there, in Weehawken and Union city, and both places are fine the way they are. Lush, green, nice narrow streets and beautiful small houses with great views over Manhattan. And a direct bus to the PABT on 8th avenue.

There's actually 15 buildings over 250ft in North Hudson according to Wikipedia, they're just all to the right of that view, I think. (Most of them in West New York.)



(-edit- This is stuff you likely know a hundred times better than me, and the above post was not to inform about common knowledge, but just to demonstrate what I think would be cool to see in the view of post #5695, because a highrise in that area would have one of the most amazing views on the entire planet.)
