They’re doing it now because they have to rebuild the Park Avenue train shed anyway.

A walkable median would be nice.

That film was from 1966 but the building didn't have a helipad. I thought they were pretty common before they were banned?

Panam/Metlife had the heliport. Before my time, but i'd imagine enough traffic was coming onto the roof that it would have been dangerous for any other tall buildings in the vicinity to have one.
