According to a survey conducted by Penn Schoen Berland, 66% of New York visitors said the new 15 Penn Plaza tower would degrade the character of the New York skyline. Which is dangerous, because 92% of them said seeing the skyline made them excited to visit New York. So much for that record tourism year! ESB owner Anthony Malkin was quick to chime in on the results, saying in a statement, "The results are clear. When NYC residents and visitors learn about 15 Penn Plaza and the prospect it presents, they do not like it...The more they hear about 15 Penn Plaza, the less they like."
