Yeah I do like 785 8th Avenue as well but the only drawback with that one is the fact that the north side of the building is really half-assed. I'm not sure but I hope there is an available lot next to it that can put up another thin tower to obscure it. Time Warner is fantastic I love it too.

As for my favorite highrises and skyscrapers:

(in no order)


20 Exchange-80 Pine-Trump World Tower-Lefcourt Colonial- Seagrams-Waldorf=Astoria- Chrysler-Hearst Tower-Woolworth building-Empire State-Solow building-Hampshire House-Manhattan Municipal Building-Citicorp-Bloomberg and lastly the Sherry Netherlander Hotel. I'll find some pictures to add to this post for some of those readers who have no idea what I am talking about.

Not skyscrapers, but some of my other favourite buildings in NY are the wonderful Dakota Building and the Plaza Hotel. These buildings totally characterize NYC for me. The architecture is second to none and they are simply aesthetically so good.
you know who once owned the plaza hotel in the 80's and early 90's?

Downtown is almost uniformly drab and depressing but 17 state St. stands out as a lovely building bringing freshness to that sea of Emery Roth and depression era greyness.


Midtowm I like the Solow and the Conde Nast.

40 wall and 80 pine are uniformly depressing? 20 Exchange is uniformally depressing.. someone smack me I didn't know this. I thought having the the second tallest concentration of art deco skyscrapers in the world was a good thing. Oh well.
