192.m does not count the crown. It will be well over 200m.

You must see it in person. The limestone matches the surrounding, classic structures, and the windows are like jewels. The crown will be magnificent.

Being the epicenter of the financial crisis, nice to see a lot of cranes over the city nearly one year later.

I quite like them windows, despite that sort of effect usually being seen as out of date since the 1970s! They bring a nostalgiac air of them times to NY here, I think. And there's no chance of Mr Pedestrian getting blinded by the sun reflecting off the windows either.

This one goes well with the Empire State Building, I think. It's classical New York, with a modern flare.

I'm unaware of a single building from the '70s with windows like these. They're quite unique and jewel-like. They must be seen in person. They're quality is simply outstanding.

Those windows on the 1st tier look like they will be a pain to wash.
