Charles V. Bagli has written an interesting article entitled “Unwelcome Neighbor for Empire State Building” in The New York Times looking at the Empire State Building vs 15 Penn Plaza Tower “question”.  Admittedly, there are issues, discussions, votes, endorsements, criticisms, politics, economics, love, hate, Mother Theresa’s birthday and feng shui whirling about here and, as usual, everyone is quite certain that they, themselves, see more clearly than anyone else and thus are “correct” in their own point of view.  No surprises, here, of course.

In the hopes of aiding you in your own reflections on the subject, we’re offering you just a few links to some of the numerous articles published on the matter…

“New York, Here is Your New Skyline” by Matt Chaban, in The Architect’s Newspaper Blog.

“Battle of the Skyline” on The Municpal Art Society of New York, here.
