    I guess it is a peak in the overall height of the skyline, but I tend to agree with you. I like something that sort of punctuates the building, making it instantly recognizable.

    I don't know why you'd be worried about retribution. This is an anonymous forum, for the most part. If you went to one, there's no law that says you have to give them your full legal name, address, etc. Make up something just to get a chance to speak, that's all. If there's another one before the summer ends, I'll join you. I'd love to "enlighten" some of these morons.
    Please do join. I'd love to attend, but i'm somewhat of a chicken shit to go to these things all by myself.

    LeCom, actualy a good way to get your feet wet for this kind of thing is to go to a meeting as an observer, then you get the hang of procedure.

    5-700 does not bother me as much as the 'fat' aspect. We have too many fat buildings going up in NYC as is. I'd take a slender 700 foot tower over a grossly overweight 900 foot tower anyday.

    Gotta love those NIMBYs; they like their buildings short and fat.
