It's shapeshifting right in front of me!

I'm all for a distinctive crown but that looks like some huge luxury yacht in dry dock parked up there!

Yes, if that element is a ridiculous looking one. Absolutely, remove it. Use that space to build a nice looking crown, or just continue rising as is. Better yet, turn the building upside down.

I think all they have to do is remove that weird thing on top and you have a pretty nice building, that cylindrical thing on top would make a great crown, I love the round shape and the glass.

WTH is this? Certainly doesn't belong in New York. Looks like the tire pump of my bicycle!

It looks like an air craft landed on top.

Come to think of it, why do I get the strange feeling that the good folks at YIMBY--and us for that matter--are about to be rickrolled with a hoax? The cladding just doesn't look realistic and @NYGuy if you were to turn this thing on its head the angle in front would make it look the more out of whack.

That doesn't even look real... and I agree get rid of the top and it looks awesome.

This tower is more Gangnam style than New York style. I will keep thinking it's a hoax until proven otherwise.

On the positive side....it could be much worse.

What a catastrophically ugly crown. Is it a helipad? A can opener?

Look at it this way, and it's much better, with a nice base and a soaring shaft...

Not sure about the top either. Looks like something just fell on top of the building, and no one cared to remove it. Would rather they remove it and add an antenna.

What the F....!!!!

When I saw that, this is the first image that came to my mind, apparently, the architect was inspired by this...
He saw that and thought: so cool, let's make that but atop a 60-story skyscraper in NYC!!!
