Do any of you refuse to work or live ON THE UPPER FLOORS of a tall building? I guess, I mean around the ~60th floor and above.

Not too long ago, I was watching old 9/11 coverage and I was like....just no way. Even if I was paid a huge amount of money to work there.

And they built this extremely tall thin building near Park Ave and it makes me sick even just looking at.

I think it's highly unlikely that a terrorist will fly another jet into a building in an American city. If they do, it would be an iconic building that everyone would recognize--not some random office or apartment tower.

I wouldn't care. I'm FAR more likely to die by an errant cab driver just a few feet above street level-- and yet somehow I'm still able muster up the strength to go outside and cross the street.

I don't have a problem with it at all. I have my fears like any other human being but this isn't one and I generally try to avoid living life in fear.

I would have no problem, with one exception, the new WTC.

That hideous building on Park is residential, and someone paid very close to $100 million for the penthouse on the 92nd floor. To each his own.

They are building a taller building nearby. In fact, it will be the tallest building in the US, taller than the WTC.

How fast does the elevator travel and how long does it take to get up to the floor (vice versa)?

Imagine if there is a power outage. That's a lot of stairs to climb...

Are you talking about 432 Park Avenue? It's now the 2nd-tallest building in NYC & the tallest residential building in the world.
