    It would be better if it were taller. To rise further above all those ugly, squat boxes. It's not nearly as bad as the other stuff on that side of the island's tip. Will Gehry's tower peak above things from this view?

    It's a beautiful buiding, but you don't put Brad Pitt's face on James Gandolfini's body. I voted "eye soar".

    One of my favorites in the city, its Timeless. Looks brand new every year.

    One of the handful of towers in NYC that actually deserves to be in waterfront. Fantastic glass that gives quite a spectacle at sunset.

    From the ferry, it certainly catches the eye.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Once again, I'm a sucker for curves and this building has a fantastic shape.

    One of my favorite modern Lower Manhattan buildings.
