^^ Ugh. There goes the freaking neighborhood.
That area has a few truly awful buildings (the Residence Inn first and foremost; 1008 Sixth Ave is pretty bad as well). But this is a new low. What a blow.
Literally the worst possible thing short of nuclear attack that can happen to a plot of land, in New York or anywhere else, is a Gene Kaufman building. The developer enabling this truly hates New York.
And the City Council really needs to revoke Kaufman's license to limit the damage his archi-terrorism has caused to his regrettable legacy of turds around the city. Then the city should ASAP incent developers to tear that crap down + rebuild anew.
