    Gee, this board isn't exactly newcomer friendly - just jumps all over anyone that didn't happen to read all...

    I wasn't the one that came up with that line...

    No, West Street will be a spectacular new West Street... a new Champs Elysees, as Pataki put it, once the its transformation into a tree lined boulevard is completed. And this new tower will add to...

    Well, it's not exactly God's gift to architecture, but look: most of the big boxes on 6th Avenue aren't exactly masterpieces, either. Tom Wolfe called it the "Rue de Regret" in one particularly...

    From that angle, the tower compliments the WTC perfectly.

    I'm glad they preserved the theatre facade; it's a nifty little piece of architecture.

    Finally! It always forever for the crowns of major towers to get done these days, it seems - the NY Times tower was the same way.

    Everyone criticized each proposal as somehow "not measuring up" or "rising to the occasion," but no one seemed able to articulate what they would like.

    (With the exception of the Twin Tower...

    Yeah, well I also noted quite a few persons purposefully baiting him, knowing what his reaction would be and getting a kick out of it. People could try to be a little kind. If somebody really hates...

    That's actually the original plan of the cathedral, in neo-Romanesque style. The Cram design featured a design that looked closer to a classic English gothic cathedral... though still incredibly...

    It looks as though the glass panels are either textured somehow, or have some sort of backing attached to them... is that to cut down on glare coming in from the outside?

    No, I didn't realize you meant to list just NYC architects.

    I thought maybe Federal Hall was designed by Latrobe (who did the 2nd National Bank in Philadelphia), but it was actually Ithiel Towne...

    Yeah, but by the time the usual value-engineering changes were made, who knows what the final product would really have looked like. I do like the look of that transit hub, though...
