    Defenetly the greatest skyscraper ever made. It must of had been such an awsome seight for those who got to see such a thing in the 30's after its completion. Even modern buildings still can't pass its class. Pobably the freedom tower won't pass its beauty as well.
    :shock:

    IF THERE ARE ANY OPINIONS REGUARDING WHAT I HAD JUST POASTED, PLEASE REPLY. THANKIU.

    Default A note about the overwhelming scale of the ESB

    One of the many distinguishing characteristics of the Empire State Building is its immense scale. The thing is and remains an enormous, omnipresent structure that demands to be seen. It was the World Trade Center of its day, and even when the World Trade Center was up, the Empire State Building was never second-fiddle. These giants of the skyline ruled.

    Ladies & gents, what New York City needs is another mega-building. If giants can be built in China, they can be built HERE. And, if you build it, they will come, just as they did to the "Empty" State Building.

    Given the latest design of "Freedom Tower", the top half of it represents an emptiness that can never be filled.

    I recently came upon an online reprint of a 1967 article that may be of interest to ESB devotees: BROADCAST ANTENNAS ON THE EMPIRE STATE BUILDING http://www.lnl.com/esbantennas.htm

    This is the article's penultimate paragraph:

    The world's most unusual antenna site may not exist much longer. Recently, the Port of New York Authority has been planning the construction of twin 110-story skyscrapers in Lower Manhattan. Independent studies by Alford Manufacturing Co, and Jansky and Bailey have shown that the proposed towers would cause ghosting to some viewers watching some of the TV stations presently on the Empire State Building. Several solutions to the program have been advanced, one being to relocate antennas from Empire State to the new. taller structures (to be known as the World Trade Center).
