Historic feet

MemeFirst proposes name changes for various New York landmarks. I will henceforth think of the Chrysler Building as the Hungarian Pagan Revolt Building (via Gothamist).

Having Freedom Tower rise to a symbolic 1776 feet is a brilliant idea, and not arbitrary at all. I believe that this practice will catch on, so as a public service I would like to propose historically more relevant names for New York's other tallest buildings.

Empire State Building, 1250ft: Stockholm City Building (City founded 1250 AD)

Chrysler Building, 1046ft: Hungarian Pagan Revolt Building (1046 AD)
