I do not agree with that ruling.

There are exceptions.

The spire atop the New York Times Building is obviously cheating to beat the Chrysler Building and that part is clear to anyone and everyone, yet you'd barely hear a yawn from the group on the subject.

As for new upcoming towers, such as 432 PA and numerous other developments on W 57th, we already know that Lower Manhattan is counting on the spire to make headlines.

I'd personally like to see a spired tower on W 57th just to bring balance to the NYC skyline.
