    What did I miss? Where did the tower come from?

    Well if we had to choose I like the first and the third the best.

    The dual glass tower is the lesser of all evils in my opinion. The 30 Hudson st copy is probably my second place. I thought the boxy-tower rendering with the ESB in the background was a drawing from the 50's...its hideous in my opinion.

    The first rendering is interesting from a political point of view in that it renders a hugely developed Far West Side, seemingly with a stadium. It's like a kid thrusting his hand in the air during class to say, "Pick me! Pick me!"

    I like the third rendering, dual towers, as well. I think the symetry plays of the classical base much better than the others.

    The tower is from the planned commercial space, although they are still saying no decision has been made on building above the station. Most likely, there will be a tower.

    The classical bi-partite towers are a bit staid in my opinion. I like the second rendering with the gently curving in and out tower -- it's not a form we have a lot of in new york, and I think the way it shifted slightly off the empire state building will have a nice effect.

    Does anyone know which architects did what proposal?

    Eye candy during Lent! Is this permissible? Ahh yes, I remember now: The Temptation in the Desert. As one who lived, if briefly, in Hell's Kitchen, I have become greatly disoriented. Where is this place set before my eyes? No such hallucinations were permitted west of Eighth Avenue. Dear Lucy, where am I?

    I'd like to see a combo of both 1 and 2. Two distinct towers, seemingly different heights, with the SOM peak in the middle. One can be commercial and one condo (probably not permitted, but a tought).

    THAT TOWER IS HIDEOUS! Please tell me that it won't be built! This is the 1968 Grand Central Tower all over again.

    Which tower? There are more than one.

    The last one is the worst, followed by the next-to-last picture. Why can't they just leave the air space alone?

    I like the 2nd and 3rd one. In my opinion the view from New Jersey to Midtwon Manhattan should not be so much influenced by such a building.I like the view like it is right now

    I take offense -- the Pan Am building over grand central is one of the best skyscrapers in the city -- it's just a vogue thing for people to say they don't like it.

    Wow! I'm in vogue! (I worked there for years - hated it).
