You know there's something to appreciate with big box towers too. They're very bold and modern.

Agreed. If anything, I'd say the big boxes that are there now are more New York than what was there before because they're bold, intimidating, and in your face, all three qualities (especially the last two) I use to describe New York.

Concrete or glass and steel, the box is all about maximizing square footage by developers in a tight, overpriced market. The fussy architecture being built in London would never happen in NY. Too much pressure to fill out the allowable envelope. It would be great if the setbacks from the 1916 building ordinance could return. That rule (which ended in 1961) left NYC with the best tall building designs in its history.
