    I think the most interesting aspect of the article is that it was written by a former UN staffer. Given the shallowness of her argument, I think the UN's effectiveness is already on the upswing and...

    I really like this one in regard to the way that it surrounds that great old building on the corner lot. So many new buildings that I've seen go up in the city next to historic buildings leave an...

    I love when people use the good old "attack against what our nation stands for" and limitation of our "civil liberties and freedoms" to blindly skirt discussion of an issue. You are right, I hope...

    The Beekman Hotel has a very relaxed, quiet atmosphere and great views of the midtown skyline, the 59th street bridge and the UN. Not overly priced. I think it is about 40 stories . . .

    One of the first things that catches my eye with this building is its setback. Why can we not build things in line anymore so that solid brick walls are not exposed?
