    Building #1 - Chickering Hall
    Building #4 - Harriman Building

    Got a more contextual shot of Building #5? It was pretty easy to figure out the addresses for #1/#4 with the context.

    What benefits does a city derive from...
  11. A Foster Building in Lower Manhattan?

    This was bugging me when I was taking an evening walk. While this is a value issue, I don't think its a valid criticism. The fact they are opposing the introduction of more families instead of...
  12. A Foster Building in Lower Manhattan?

    Although I hate government intervention, from what I've read about this site, it doesn't really seem like an abuse of the power. Private owners have been squabbling over these parcels for decades...

    AOL Time Warner and Central Park
