tallest man made structure in the state of NJ ?
( I have no idea,  that's why I'm asking)
How tall are the tallest buildings in Newark ?
or Trenton ?   or down Atlantic City ?
   I know those places have some pretty tall buildings,   but any
greater than 45 stories ?
   Or perhaps is there a 500 ft antenna tower somewhere ?  ( I know
there are some real tall antenna towers in north NJ)
   Just wondering,   if anybody knows

Doing some googling finds:

Goldman Sachs in Jersey City is about 800 ft high.

Kingda Ka will be 456 ft tall. That pales in comparison to the tallest
building in NJ but it's in the range of the next tallest buildings around
the state. I have no idea about other towers, etc.

30 Hudson Street in Jersey City is 781 ft. high.

Compare the following buildings to Kingda Ka. I'm not sure if there are any
other cities that would have any buildings taller than these. Trenton
doesn't have anything close.

Atlantic City
1. Borgata Hotel & *** - 480 ft.
2. Trump Taj Mahal - 429 ft.

Newark
1. National Newark Building - 465 ft.
2. 1180 Raymond Boulevard - 448 ft.

  Interesting that the Bally's hotel didn't show up there, it's got to
be at least as tall as the Taj. I think I stayed on the 43rd floor
last year, and there were four or five floors above ours.

  Thanks for the replys.   I kinda figured that IF
Kingda Ka was going to be the tallest man made structure in NJ,  that
GrAdv's marketing would have picked up on that and used it as a
marketing point.

   The other thing I was wondering,  by the math,  is how far you'll be
able to see from the top of KK's tower ?
(realizing that due to "air quality" that you'll prob never be able to
see that far)   8-(

Bally's is #3 on the AC list and is not much shorter than the Taj Mahal. I'm
not familiar with these buildings and I don't know if the height includes
towers, poles or ornamentation above the building floors.

A Google search revealed that a NJ Treasury document for Radio Tower
Maintenance lists a 651 ft. tall radio tower serving Troop C of the
State Police standing in Ft. Dix.

There's another site about bird-killing towers(!) that lists NJ as
having 4 800+ ft. tall towers, all in South Jersey, but I can't find any
more info on them.  For comparison, the famous Armstrong Tower in Alpine
NJ (the first FM tower, and also the tower the NYC TV stations used
after 9/11) is listed by its owners as 400 ft. tall, although a few
other sources give 425' for the height.

Oh yeah, I'm a geek.

According to The Free Dictionary (Encyclopedia section), under "United
States Tallest Structures":

(URL for site:
http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/United%20States%20tallest%2...)

[Begin Inserted Info]

New Jersey:

WWSI Television Tower (Philadelphia Telemundo 62)
Height: 1000 ft (610 m)
Tuckerton (39 37' 53" 074 21' 10")
Year built: 2000 Owner: Hispanic Broadcasters of Philadelphia

[End Inserted Info]

Tuckerton is in the southern part of New Jersey, in Ocean County off
the Garden State Parkway, near if not exactly in the Pinelands.

The site also list the tallest masts in the world (radio and TV
"towers" not officially called towers), identifying them by country
but not by state.  

Here's the URL for that list:
http://encyclopedia.thefreedictionary.com/List%20of%20masts

I'm not familiar with any of the radio station/TV channel call
letters, so I doubt any of the ones that exceed 1,000 ft. are located
in NJ (my guess is that ones located in the US are mostly in the
mid-west or west, but I could be wrong).

Nah, Melody.  'Cause that would mean I'm one, too, for continuing the
"research".  :-)

Don't go climbing any towers or masts!  :-)

I got a chuckle out of the discussion about possible "tall" buildings
in Trenton.  The building where I work is in the heart of downtown. It
has seven stories and if the 6th floor cubicle where I spend each day
was located anywhere *near* a window I know I could see out over most
of the city and across the Delaware into PA!  There are a few
buildings that are several stories taller than Capital Center (where I
work), but all in all, the Trenton skyline isn't very dramatic
height-wise.  I honestly don't know how many stories are in the
tallest occupied structure.  More research needs to be done!  :-)
