    Ah, we have two threads going on Conde Nast. Anyway, to repeat an earlier post....

    I was in Times Square and around town over the weekend. The mast has reached new heights and has made a mark on the skyline. It is also regrettably ugly and completely out of proportion with the building.

    I don't think I've ever been so anxious to see an antenna. I'll be in NY a couple weekends from now and I'm going to make a point to see this building! lol

    If you wouldn't mind could you please take some pictures? I don't know the next time is that I'll have a chance to go into the city, but I hope soon.

    I see midtown on clear days from Smith 9th-Street stop on the F train, and today I glanced at the Empire State Building...when I noticed a competing neighbor. It was the antenna from Conde-Nast. It is H-U-G-E. I seriously think it extends up to the ESB's 90th floor or so. I'll try to get a picture (mabye this weekend?) from the station. But it really rivals the Empire State. (Imagine what it looks like from the observation deck?)

    The new antenna is certainly different. It's so large, it's a significant new member to the skyline, and right now it's almost all latticework except for the topmost area which is a solid piece of transmitting machinery. So at first glance, you'd almost think that solid piece is floating in the sky until you register the latticework. Weird stuff, definately not typical for New York.

    The rendering shows those two white sections, only thing left is the thinner white top section and what looks like some rings around the lower sections.

    It certainly does look different.
    And way better.

    The angle in the first picture actually makes it appear shorter. It is very tall and, I feel, very ugly.

    I've been a lurker, here, for about two years...never felt the need to post a comment, until now...that antenna...looks awful.

    Function over form, with no consideration to proportion...just floors me.

    Proportions seem to look good when one is used to them. Being disturbed by the new antenna is a healthy reaction.

    How freudian of you Dr. Fabb.

    Come on !
    Freudian theories refer constantly to sexuality.
    Did I make an allusion without realizing it ?
    Am I out of control ?
