    If it weren't for Chelsea Piers and 1 Mad Ave in the last two pics, that would be an almost (that blank red brick wall and New York Life's golden pyramid almost hidden) perfect view. Looks cool in B&W, though.

    This building is an absolute stunner.

    The first view in #481 is pretty tacky, even without the garbage.

    Distance shots in context with its surroundings are superb, but the closeups don't do it any favours.

    Apparently Sandy had the effect of closing the prison, and it hasn't reopened.

    This is news to me: apparantly the curtain wall was assembled poorly with the window panels just being "slapped together". The claims about the shoddy workmanship have not yet been factually substantiated; but I have personally observed the construction process of that building and have noticed the curtain wall components seemed to be ill-fitted, bent and broken in several locations. There have been attempts made recently to repair and upgrade the curtain wall: so there might be a remedy to this problem.

    If ther are any building design or construction industry folks out there reading this; it would be great to get some more information from someone who has more experience and knowledge on the matter. Please post you comments here: it would be greatly appreciated.
