You mean 30 Hudson? Well, not as lonely because Manhattan is across the river, but perhaps if Jersey City was 50-60 miles away from Manhattan, I suppose so considering it's not in the cluster of skyscrapers to the right.

For me a lonely skyscraper if not really about distancies but more about his skyline like Tour Montparnasse in Paris or Taipei 101 in Taipei

yeah, you're right. i guess it appears lonely when you're on the NY side looking west. it just seems stuck in the middle of no where from the pics i've ever seen of it...

I say the Tapei 101 wins. Atleast it did before the tower they just built next to it.

However, the Torre Colom IS very lonely. And ugly.
