^^This table is an excellent summary of the current 300+ m status. Just 10 years ago, NYC's tallest were dominated by very old buildings:

Empire State Building (1931): 381 m
Bank of America Tower (2009): 365.8 m
Chrysler Building (1930): 318.9 m
New York Times Tower (2007): 318.8 m
70 Pine Street (1932): 290.2 m
40 Wall Street (1930): 282.5 m
Citigroup Center (1977): 278.9 m
Trump World Tower (2001): 262.4 m
GE Building (1933): 259.8 m
CitySpire Center (1987): 248.1 m
One Chase Manhattan Plaza (1961): 247.8 m
4 Time Square (1999): 246.6 m
MetLife Building (1963): 246.3 m

I went to the ESB's upper (102nd floor) observation deck in June 2009 and remember feeling a little sad that most of the prominent buildings in the city were so old. The supertalls built since 2009 have drastically modernized NYC's skyline.
