Exclamation Typo-esb

Hello Folks,

My name is Christian and I am from Germany. In January I was in New York and on the ESB. Inspired by the architecture I created a TYPO-ESB designed with all the relevant facts from the History of the building. My Question to you:
Which Version do you like more? The dark- or the light-ESB? Many thanks for your reply. I hope I'm not wrong in this post.

Best wishes.
Christian

The light one looks like Metropolis (Superman). The dark one looks like Gotham (Batman). My question to you, who's better Batman or Superman?

The Empire State Building is truly a jewel and stands alone for its art deco beauty, it is instantly recognizable and a symbol of NY. Even though it will soon lose its title as NY's tallest to One World Trade Center, its always going to be THE quintessintial skyscraper. I love it.

That would be Tower 111, which actually wrapped up in the early summer of last year.

That is a nice looking tower that adds some height to the neighbourhood near the ESB. Thanks for the info.

On this day.....March 02, 1933 – The film "King Kong" premiered at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The star besides the Ape was the Empire State Building, then the World's tallest building!

Hey, I came across an old comment in the 1WTC thread where someone (STR, I think) mentioned there were renderings of a plan from the 70's to add something like thirty floors to the ESB. I looked through the thread but couldn't find them, anyone have those renderings?
