    It's a wonder why more people don't understand that.

    Here's great news about the failure of this POS. Hopefully, no one will ever lend this slimy schmuck another sheckel.

    Now I can add this to the list of buildings I'd like demolished.

    I'd rather see the POS, value-destroying reclad removed and the building restored to what it was, oh, a year ago.

    The darling to 1775 Broadway's left in the photo, 4 Columbus Circle, is a truly ugly building; that (along with pretty much every Yorkville highrise, which it resembles) I'd like to see demolished.

    Could they just have done with it and re-cover that old fashioned white building to the east (just across Broadway at 58th)?

    That one is so passe, it's clad in marble or something. This is the 21st Century and here we are in the middle of NYC, with buildings covered in rocks.

    Moinian, et al should be sent to Guantanamo.

    Nice use of alliteration there Shakespeare, did Goebbels teach you that in SS youth? or was it in the Hezbollah training camps?

    One would think Moinian was holding you up for a pound of flesh

    What an abomination. Hopefully in 50 years, if and when people minds will change, some developer will try to restore its original facade.

    You don't consider him a reprehensible schmuck?

    PS: You seem to possess a level of hate that matches Avigdor Lieberman and Bibi Netanyahu. Did Rachel Corrie "get what she deserved" in your view?

    are you serious? All the "hate" was in your initial comment, how was I hateful for blatantly calling you on it?

    Granted I believe this development is quite reprehensible, however for you it just gives you another excuse to show you true colors. I dont know if you've realized this, but the majority of major real estate developers in this city happen to be Jews, some of them are good developers, some not so good - the same can be said about developers of any ethnicity.

    IMHO Sam Chang has done far more to disgrace this city aesthetically speaking than Monian, yet I dont see you leaving comments about him along the lines of "I hope that cheap chink loses all his egg rolls"

    Chang is a schmuck. I've stated that on several occasions.
    Moreover, it's my undertanding that Moinian is Armenian, so don't get so excited.

    Imagine a Chang building of the size akin to those built by Moinian
