    Yes. They are incomprehensibly awful, but at least they have windows all the way down, and do not look like they are made of armor. Plus, no matter how ugly the design, a hotel cannot represent...
  4. It's not possible

    I can't believe that's a photo of an actual building. It must be some kind of photoshop joke, right? It looks like something out of a cheap sci-fi film about a future militaristic society.

    Someday someone is going to explain to me how those wings are going to hold the weight of all that snow that can fall in a New York blizzard. I know I'm a cynic, but dang those things are looooong...

    Absolutely beautiful. Bravo. Clearly the only building on the site that even tried to be iconic. Good for them.

    Actually, the more we can put into that memorial park thing the better, since I'm eagerly awaiting news of the landscaping of that park. If it's just a big flat area with scattered trees, it's not...

    Now that my euphoria is winding down, I'm left with two questions in my mind. First, didn't the broadcasters want an antenna of at least 2000' in order to broadcast in High Def? And Second, since...
