    Why ask when you could have googled it in the time it took you to post this thread?

    Good idea. It may not be the tallest for long. Terrorist may take it down of some other country like China may decide to build a taller one.

    When I went to the Empire State Building it had been the tallest builnding on the world for 30 years.

    That was the point.

    Nobody went to the poor 2nd tallest building in the word - ther Chyrsler Building a few blocks away.
