One of the most graceful boxes I've ever seen. Good Pics. It makes quite a presence when seeing it in person. If you stand next to the U.N. you get some good views.

I have to quibble with this point. The first time I specifically went to look at this building, it was late late evening, and it had taken me by a bit of surprise.

But when I visited the building at some later date during the day, it decisively did not have much of a "presence", even compensating for my increased readyness given the first encounter. It just seems to fade into the sky, and is in no way imposing.

Building? Sky? Where does one end and the other begin? :)

I need to visit this building on a cloudy day like that picture of 17 State Street in another thread.

Trump buildings are glitzy, not tacky. *There's a big difference.

I can't look at that building without hearing "Thus Spake Zarathustra" in my head.

:) That, or the 2001: A Space Odyssey music.

From downtown, its facing narrow side looks like a black smokestack.

I watched a documentary on Donald Trump a couple of weeks ago, and it was mentioned that the Trump World Tower has virtually the same dimensions as the monolith from 2001.

Can someone post a shot of the Trump Building from across First Avenue? I would like to use it as evidence of the blight of tunnel ramps. Thanks.

Plus it was finished in 2001 :D

The best way to get access to any building is contact the building engineer. Maybe he or she will buy your story.

Since the Trump World Tower is residential (and very fancy residential at that) it'll (rightfully) be much harder to convince anyone to let you on the roof.

In the documentary "Born Rich" they interview Ivanka Trump from the roof of a Manhattan skyscraper, which I assume would be one of Donald's developments. It might be the Trump World Tower, I don't really remember what the skyline looked like so I don't know. If it is, maybe you could get some stills from that.

TWT, or the Millenium Hilton hotel: which Monolith is right for you?

They're both excellent. Imagine putting them in the same general vicinity as each other; the juxtaposition would be perfect. In fact, in its review of the building the City Review had proposed that TWT would have looked better in the plaza of the WTC, so that it could play against the Millenium Hilton.

Great topic by the way.
