It was the very first true Supertall, a brilliant feat of design and engineering that defined what an impressive skyscraper is, that all other cities aspire to immitate or surpass. Considering when it was built, the sublime example of architecture it is, and its fame, I'm astounded it didn't make that "7 Modern Wonders" list that came out this year. (Come to think of it, that the Statue of Liberty was omitted is astonishing, too, even if only considering what it represented to tens of millions from all over the world. Indeed, one could probably come up with a credible list of Seven Wonders that are ALL in New York: Central Park, the Brooklyn Bridge, the new World Trade Center all come to mind... )
