New York Skyscrapers Getting Skinny!

New York City's newest skyscrapers are trimming down a lot; a project under construction at 111 West 57th Street will be the slimmest in the world. The thinner buildings are based on New York land costs, technological advances and tricky zoning regulations that permit the skinnier structures. The West 57th Street building with big Central Park views will top out at over 1,400 feet with a width-to-height ratio (measurement of the building's height to base) of 1:24.
