    Strange shape, it seem that the corner is not joint....
    The glasses are getting better altogether, even if the light is always too dark to understand their real colour...

    The corner is very odd.

    Thanks for the update, MTG.

    How does this glass look in person?

    Apart from the quality (or lack thereof) of the glass, this dark glass doesn't seem to blend in well with the brown brick of the neighboring buildings.

    The glass looks wavy in person and very very blue. The configuration at the chamfered corner is strange....can't figure out what's going on there.

    It appears in photos to be typical NY quality (i.e., cheap mierda). Is it?

    oh...it's even worse...meaning shit smells bad, shit with onions smells worse.

    From an old expression my Dad used to say. It's originally in another language, other than Spanish or English... something is lost in the (double) translation.

    That is some serious cheap-ass glass.

    It looks like a funhouse. Our developers are evil clowns.

    After seeing it in person I'm thinking the corner we're confused about will meet at 90 degrees in front of the angled glass creating a triangular column of space/light at the corner.

    Can't wait to see the giant clock mounted on the corner. Maybe Flavor Flav is the architect.
