    Looks like an Exxon station.
    But I like it anyway. Here's to buildings that add dimension to the urban fabric.

    ^ They could cantilever a tower like Citicorp over the Moondance Diner.

    I don't care for it. First I am surprised that they would allow someone to build over the highline and obstruct the supposedly great views and to be honest I think it isn't too far off from the Holiday Inn on 8th Avenue that everyone hates so much, but it just has legs! Could just be me though!

    You should send an email to Gary Barnett / Extell suggesting just that (they've got the Moondance site).

    Back when the neighborhood shut down on weekends and I had to work a Saturday, Moondance was open for breakfast. Banana pancakes, cinnamon coffee, free refills.

    What a shame if that Moondance goes.

    That would be too bad. I used to know one of the managers there, Steve. He ran the Madison coffee shop on 53rd and 1st for years.
