Yeah, its supposed to have that record ratio.
But I don't think it really means as much when you compare it to other towers proportionately. I keep thinking about the Burj Khalifah...
Of course, this is looking at the tower from the side, or at an angle...
But people who think 432 Park is thin or too tall will do another double take when they see this one...
And New York will have its own "eye of Sauron" (imagine the fun kids in Central Park can have).
