May I remind some of you that The Empire State--amongst other quite talls--was put up during the Great Depression (The diagram section is your friend)? After 1941, not one tower that I know of rose in the decade + change following.

'Course, after WWII, we started to see the wedding-cake design which came about as, IIRC, the result of zoning laws run slightly amuck. The UN Secretariat finished up in '52 and the rest is indeed history, stable/unstable international banks notwithstanding.
