    And that spire was the setting of this movie's final battle sequence.

    I suppose that should knock a point off the building's score; not being able to easily access the topmost sections.

    So down from an 11/10 to a paltry 10/10

    Can we have a 21st Century version close to 2000ft? Too many ugly ducklings crowding her space.

    I wonder if its possible to jack the upper portion of the building up a couple hundred feet and build some new office floors in between? Probably not in our day and age.

    Anyone know how well this building actually functions as an office building? Anyone where actually work in it?

    Isn't there a rather famous dentist's office very high up the building?
