Yes, it's nice to see someone on these forums who genuinely lives near the city and posts their own content.

Thank you QUEENSNYMAN once more!

Wow the Empire State Building would have still been amazing without the spire. So glad they put that on though.

City of spires

I'm annoyed they removed those T bar shaped bracket affairs that once ringed the 102nd floor cupola. They were a very distinctive part of the building's decoration and should have been preserved, even in a single row above the new floor to ceiling glass. Shame on them.

I had mixed feelings about the renovation and change in windows, but it doesn't affect the building overall. And the finished product at the top is worth it. I want them to add the option of visiting the 103rd floor to the public, and not just the VIPs.

I was way overdue as well, hadn't been in years. But it's great, and has that history that sets it apart from the new decks.
