    If only because the building itself looks so short from far away.

    True, True.

    Those photos dont do the city justice, it all looks squashed together and low.

    Is it the antenna the MTVA planned for Jersey city or Bayonne?

    Bayonne.

    Do you think that the Conde Nast antenna will be taken down if the tower is built?

    It would be a waste to put up an antenna that size for only 3 or 4 years. Besides, I don't think the owners or tenants want any more construction work. On an unrelated note, has anyone noticed how the antenna "twinkes" (or mabye "flashes" is the right word) at night? The lights are so bright you can see them for like 15 miles. It really adds to the visual effect of the skyline.

    I just noticed tonight that the flashies have been replaced with the more typical red lights. Also, the box on the roof that used to be lit is still dark. I think they're still working on it a bit so there may be a slim hope for some more interesting lighting.

    Very late '70s/early '80s.

    They may have been said already, but that antenna is disproportionately large for the building.

    Conde Nast looks smashing with the new antenna. 13 March 2004.

    When I was in New York last summer, they did change the antennae. I am wondering how they got the cranes up on top? The antennae looks to large to me. Old one was better.

    Edward, I can see crane on the roof right beside the antenna. It looks like they are going to remove old billboard frames and will replace them by full motion video LED Lumacom Signage very soon, then all the building will look even more smashing, don't you think?

    I'm conflicted... sometimes it looks awkwardly large for the building, sometimes it looks great. Another view (looking down 42nd):
