He definitely looked shorter than 6'1 next to Jeff Goldblum in ID (and he was just over 40 by the time of the movie).

Looked shorter than Kelsey Grammar in Cheers.

Met him plenty of times. The man is no shorter than 6ft.

in Independence day (1996) he was 3.5" shorter than Jeff Goldblum (6'4):
I give him 6'0.5 peak and 6'0 today

"Peak height was 6ft 2in (188cm)"
Don't know about current height though

You've got to be kidding me, this guy can't be taller than 5ft10, maybe a weak 5ft11. Look at him next to 5ft7-7.5 Broderick.

No taller than 6' flat based on Independence Day, might even be 5'11. Goldblum looked easily 4-5 inches taller to me, at least when he stood straight. Fierstein barely reached his eyelevel. If he's 6'2 that would make Jeff 6'6-6'7 LOL.

In Independence Day, Jeff Goldblum did in fact tower over Harvey by at least 2-3 inches, so I'll stick with Harvey being no more than 6-6'1"

Rob 6ft and 6ft1 is too low both now and at peak. I buy 6ft2.5 peak and about 6ft1.5 now.

LOL at the guy saying he was 2 inches shorter than Goldblum. Jeff was 4 inches taller.

yeah, he has a big presence

I think 6ft2.5-6ft2.75 is about right.
Hugh said on 5/Dec/08
Well he's described in most places as 6ft4.75! Rob are you sure you have this correct.
Hugh said on 5/Dec/08
How can this guy only be 6ft1! He's been described as 6ft4.

Mine is full of skeletons. :-) Don't tell CSI! Seriously (?): my wife saw Mr. Fierstein in FIDDLER ON THE ROOF in DALLAS a few years ago. She and my "beloved" mother-in-law got backstage with a civic group my M-i-L belongs to. My wife said Harvey looked about 6'2" and was very "burly". My mother-in-law was shocked to find out Harvey FIERSTEIN was ACTUALLY Jewish! I DON'T go to my Cousin Norman (NOT Bates!) for therapy; he's a PhD and can't prescribe drugs. So really, what would be the point?

Mine are of the rather large walk-in variety. Once inside some people get lost.

He looked 2" shorter than Jeff Goldblum in INDEPENDENCE DAY. And Goldblum has never looked anything less than 6'4". Better watch out guys, my shrink cousin says homophobia is often caused by a tight closet? :-)
Frank2 said on 29/Mar/06
When he's usually floating a few inches off the floor how can one accurately measure his height?
D. Ray Morton said on 26/Mar/06
Met the guy several times. 6'2" - 6'3" and really sweet.

You'd be a good detective Rob, you've figured out my M.O.
John said on 24/Mar/06
Harvey is 6'2, I know him threw a mutual friend, I asked him his height, stood next to him, trust me the guy is 6'2.
Tim said on 24/Mar/06
Come on! The guy looks only at 6'1" max, watch Kull the Conqueror and Independence Day.
theheightguru said on 24/Mar/06
WOW! I am shocked by this one! Granted, I have never really compared his height to another actor's, but I never would have put him at more than 5'10".
EJ said on 24/Mar/06
6'4-3/4" on the IMDB
[Editor Rob: was that you bumping the guy up ;-)]
Tim said on 23/Mar/06
I would say he is closer to 6'1", after watching " Kull the Conqueror" and a seen with Geoff Goldblum in " Independence Day".
