Indeed. And only one (midtown) of the two skylines is prominently featured in these shots. As is amply demonstrated below, the downtown skyline of the 1930s-1940s is singularly awesome.

Little did they knew then that in a few decades, two supertalls were going to top above everything else in that shot.

BAH!
And it was one of the worst mistakes NY ever made! The destruction of the above downtown blocks for the WTC was horrific! I won't say more on it to not derail the thread, after all we have a WTC thread already to bitch in about. But want to make the point!

I love the blend of old and new in lower Manhattan! I guess that's why I get frustrated when I hear people lamenting the fact that Lower Manhattan wasn't preserved under some hermetically sealed heritage snowglobe.

There is a reason they call me an Architect Curmudgeon

I will be the first to admit my views are far from reasonable, but they are still my views. And even I wouldn't go so far as to say '"hermetically sealed heritage snowglobe"" But I do find myself at odds with the vast majority of anything built after 1945.

I guess I'm an oddball then, because I have love for the modern skyscrapers lots of people hated. Even One and Two New York Plaza, and 55 Water street. Further north, I've also got love for One Penn Plaza, and One Astor Plaza with its adorable finned crown.

Funny, I always thought ESB was male and Chrysler was the female. But according to Empire State on facebook, the green was in fact for earth day.

just a few more hours and The Empire State Building will lose again the crown as the tallest building in NYC!

No matter where this tower ranks in height, it is still the mother of all skyscrapers and the best one ever built!

True, but at least it has been eclipsed again by a worthy successor. At least it can retire in peace once again.
