    Quite a hot building. *Although the shaft is a bit astylar, the crown is its redeeming quality. *However, I wish that it were a bit bulkier, with more stories—not necessarily taller, but it seems odd that a 700-footer would have less than 50 floors.

    Right. But this is nothing compared to Goldman Sachs.

    I agree too. The Goldman Sachs building is amazing, but the Bear Stearns building is nice.

    On a related note, Trump Palace and CitySpire have begun floodlighting again. *Well, CitySpire had actually resumed a while ago, but TP started up again on Tuesday.

    Thanks Derek2k3 for all those great pics!

    Does anyone know (or have some pics) of what is in the center of the crown? You can kind of see a structure in there but a top down photo would be nice.

    Since no one has pics, I would guess that it is a small rectangular structure that rises from the floor (starting at 2nd highest window level) to the top window level. You can kind of see through the glass in the first picture; which I assume houses a huge flood light system for illuminating the crown.

    Bear Stearns World Headquarters building - the view from the 64th floor of GE Building, with the Chrysler and Metlife buildings on the right.

    And a few weeks later, they both ceased. A year later, though, they're both back on.
