That steel looks to be the max height of the crown. So it should be 1005 ft high. Topped out?

Even though it looks like the top of an upright vacuum cleaner. I suppose you can say it's "cleaning up the skyline," as in making it better. Also, congratulations on finally topping out

I like neo-gothic buildings MUCH better than art deco buildings, but still, it's not like 157 is a bad building.

The 5 buildings in NY that we've watched grow this year are all finally topped out!

Edit: 6 buildings... I forgot about the Times Square Hyatt. NYC had an amazing construction boom these past few years...

There are a few others, but they are too short to include.

Hey, nice. T/O, great, not too much space to cover with steel at the top.

Are you kidding me? Who doesn't like Art Deco? There is no objective metric for comparing the "superior" classical buildings to their Art Deco successors.
