    Who'd want to live there with a view of all the bums sitting in the park outside. :P

    I read an article in today's NYT real estate section about how there are studio apartments in this building for more than $1 million. Let's hear it for capitalism..

    Sorry, Meier. You got greedy.

    Well, give it a chance. At least it's glass. I actually like that it's not a clone of the other 2. Three that are basically the same would have been too much. It might turn out fine upon completion.

    The design of the third was too derivative of the originals. It should have been a third completely in the same design and style or something completely different. The third altered design destroys the beauty of the first two and vice versa.

    I agree. I think he should've played more with abstract forms and created a greater whole, if Meier would've made the third a curving building it would've looked hot!

    It's also the same height. Brings to mind just a domino row of matching luxury apartment buildings, one after the other, marching down the Hudson riverfront. Playtime, anyone?

    Not so bad; sure dresses up the neighborhood.

    And the skyline.

    Ain't a thing in existence that you can't improve in your mind. Question is: can you improve it on paper?

    Meier is one of the best; he never does an ugly building. How many others can you say that about?


    P.S. I really like it in red.
