Isn't the 102nd floor deck closed a lot? When I visited the ESB like 8 years ago, we couldn't get up there because it was thunderstorming. Apparently it closes in the winter because of ice, right?

Re: defacing the painting in the lobby. I can't believe someone painted over art before covering it with a drop ceiling. At least have to foresight to imagine that it might be useful again someday, and just stick with installing a ceiling that masks it. The full restoration might be worth it, though; not too long ago they did one of the Sistine Chapel (ok, ok, we're not comparing apples to apples, but whatever) and it revealed some brilliant colors that had been masked by years of just painting over the old one when it needed to be fixed.
