Off With Its Top! City Cuts Tower to Size
They got in right in that this type of action would turn the city into a living museum, and some would have it no other way. However, there is a limit to what the Planning Commision can do in regards to architecture and height. This tower just happens to be in a position where its at the whim of the CPC and what they deem "acceptable" architecture. Which is maddening when you consider all of the other things that have risen and will rise, this is one tower that is truly perfect for New York and the skyline. Why mess with perfection?
