    Yeah, so I was in NYC last week and saw this in person. Wow is the first, last, and every other word in my mind. This is coming out better in person than even the renderings showed. I really can't...

    A translucent box, though. Which is more than we can say for the other box.

    They must have stashed some really good coffee up there for this to be happening. None of that Starbucks junk.

    It would need to be in some way unique to be a breath of fresh air, except this isn't so much different than 90 West, or 7 Bryant Park, or 4 WTC, or any number of other reasonably glassy towers with...

    If this tower isn't phallic, I've been using the word wrong.

    The connection isn't quite so direct. You end up dumped out on the downtown R (Brooklyn bound, at this point) platform. You'd then go down a level to the Dey street passage that would connect you to...

    That's because there are only 6 Z trains each peak direction each weekday each occurring 10 minutes apart over a single hour (rush hour!). We're not talking about a very full service schedule.

    I think that angle (the flat side), is the least photogenic too. If a tower that is all glass all the way around can have a back, this certainly seems to be it.

    I feel like the white window framing really diminishes the building. I feel like something darker/more consistent/less contrast-y would have made for a better composition. Something like Aqua in...

    If the building was really 1100 feet, this rendering is questionable at best and downright deceptive at worst. It looks no taller than 40 Wall St (927') or OCMP (813'), when in fact, it would tower...

    Sorry, but having photographed it repeatedly, I think this building is terrible.

    Greedy as they may be, there's some pretty good space for fanciful flights that are still profitable when selling at over $15,000 a square foot too. The uniqueness would certainly help too. It's not...
  13. Yes and yes.

    Yes and yes.

    WOW! You quote Ulysses S. Grant once, in reference to the fact that people tend to complain about many of the most beloved buildings when they're new, and a whole lively dick conversation pops up. In...

    I should try to find how many years ago I said the gas station wouldn't make it another 5 years. I think I was right.

    Was there really a subway entrance this far down in the past, or are they using some of the long closed passageway that runs under 6th ave all the way to 34th st for this entrance?
  18. Actually, you know, I must have been looking at...

    Actually, you know, I must have been looking at the picture wrong, the cut gets wider and wider (staying vertical to the right), it's not falling across the building as I had initially thought it...

    Pure genius. Balconies that get larger every floor. It's a way to make higher apartments multiplicatively more expensive instead of additively.

    It remains unique. I'll give it that. Is it still empty? It was empty for a long time.

    I can't believe I haven't updated this post in a year! I've since moved to Broomfield, but I should have time this week to bang out an update before I head back east for a while. And then, well then...

    First one is Maiden Lane right around Gold. Second one is looking north from Trinity Place.

    I suspect the bridge is going all glass to match the new entrances. I don't believe it's being removed.

    Well, I'll be there at the end of october for exactly that, but I sorta meant 'I guess that's as tall as it'll be, huh?' Since there's a flag on top. Either way, I'll check it out in person, but I'm...
