don't worry, that was just a test to see how many PMs i would get if i use an israeli flag. i try to stay neutral in the israel - palestinian conflict, although it can get very difficult sometimes.

on topic: do you have more info about the (future) development of 42nd street?

I don't have any more information about 42nd Street at the moment, but I hope that China tears down its ugly consulate on 42nd and 12th Ave. and builds an iconic skyscraper that represents its great might. It deserves a symbol of power.

I can't support Israel until it agrees to a Palestinian state with pre-1967 borders, including its capital in East Jerusalem.
What does this have anything to do with Skyscrapers?
Most sane people can't support Palestine until they stop supporting Hamas.

If there's one thing the Israelis and Palestinians have in common, it's that they're both really good at turning people into retards.

you are not the only one...

1. the glass is darker (and that's an understatement!)
2. the final build- out is still missing, hence the height is different (188m, 195m, 204m?)
3. something i can't remember right now lol

It looks basically the same as in the rendering but for whatever may, or may not, be done with the little cut-out, box on the top.

Moral equivalence between civilized hebrews and blood-thirsty jew-haters will lead you to indirectly support the murders of the later; cowardice at best.

It's not because you're from Flint that you should 'think' like Michael Moore (his native town in case you wonder where the connection is).


Back to the topic maybe?

You COMPLETELY misunderstood what I said there. I don't care though, this discussion is worthless for the entire forum.
