    One of my least favorite Times Square buildings ... but I can't imagine a more flattering picture of it.

    That Roche-Dinkeloo funk. There's a very "80s" feel to all their buildings.

    I get ill when I see this building. The great Rivoli Theatre "the Parthenon of Broadway" was torn down for this. I remember in the 80īs, afraid of landmark status, the owners tore off the beautiful friezes that decorated the facade. It was designed by Thomas Lamb.... tearing down the Rivoli was criminal..... During the 1980īs, NYC lost some of itīs greatest works of art:
