    Default 28/30 West 46th. St.

    28 and 30 west 46th. St. are currently being torn down. Does anyone know what will replace the plot?

    I would bet $100 that the developer intentionally made the surrounding buildings look really skeezy - the chipping paint on the buildings to the left, the Subway and Chinese take-out to the right - plus the sketchy electrician / pedophile van, in order to make his steaming pile of dung look relatively not-apocalyptical.

    What the hell is wrong with this city that it tolerates this crap in its very heart? Nouvel can't build the full Tour Verre, but Amanda Burden doesn't mind if cheap-o hotels are built that look like they came straight out of Baghdad ... and as if they'll fall down the next time the wind comes in strong from the Euphrates.

    In the meantime we're inundated with clueless European tourists jammed into these new piles of crap.

    Tourists of all stripes, although all my coworkers stay in these hotels because they're conveniently located to our office. Hell, they're conveniently located to any class B office space that hasn't been torn down for the construction of these hotels.

    At least the gem tower will block it from certain angles.

    Seeing crap like this makes me feel like Abner Louima.
