1.17.08 - This thing is going to be huge.
I think picture from a range of points on the bridge would be better. However your picture reminds me that the BB isnt exactly the most amazing place to view the WW. Viewing Woolworth on the bridge isnt at its best until you are closer to manhattan, a point at which BrooklynRider states it is in clear view.
What challenge? If you mean this "question":When confronted with a challenge instead of just trying to seek clarification they try to turn it around to their detetractor:
Some question. If I agree with you, then I'm wrong. If I don't, then I'm "silly."The left view IMO is in not going to be enhanced unless you honestly believe that Gehry's Beekman is better than the WW. Do you honestly believe that???? If you do then you are silly.
The fact of the matter is, I have already answered it but you are thickheaded and so I have to do it again (although, you will probably come back and say that I'm distorting again.)
Let me say it slow and clear: The Woolworth is a great building but that does not make another building less great in its own right simply because it isn't like it.
Furthermore, looks are subjective. Not everyone agrees. Just look at the polls for the Tower Verre. You may consider it a great building, but there are still a couple of people there that think it's "ugly." The same goes for 56 Leonard and the other buildings you claim were great. There are some people that do not find them to be "great."
If someone doesn't agree with you, that does not make them silly, full of crap, distorting, deceptive or any of the other names you like to call them.
Now onto your question.
Yes, I do believe the view is going to be enhanced with the addition of the Beekman building. That's what I said in my original post that you quoted and objected to.
A great view of a skyline should consists of a variety of buildings types, not just one great one surrounded by a bunch of anonymous boxes. I have already shown a pic of the left view showing that most of the buildings in that view are nothing special, most can even be considered ugly.
The Beekman building is the only one in the past 50 years to come along in that area that goes beyond the boxy look. It adds to the view, not take away from it. You don't seem to get that. In your ignorance, you are angry and belligerent to any other differing viewpoint.
Right, and the one person that agrees with you have been banned due to constanting spamming this thread with bogus claims she had no knowledge of.Well thank goodness for research as it can help us sort out discrepancies. Any one who walks across the Brooklyn Bridge can very easily see that the claim that antinymby makes with respest to the views that me and lizbeth were referring to is just simply not true.
This proves my claim that you are dense. Brooklynrider's comment supports exactly what I've been saying: the Beekman does not obscure the Woolworth at all points along the bridge.In case you dont want to take my word for it please find Brooklynriders assessment:
And by the way, you must be dense because why would anyone repeatedly misspell my handle eventhough the correct spelling is right there in each of my post that you quoted?Antinymby

You are wasting your time AN, Trepye is another lisebeth. He wont listen to anything you say that disagrees with his personal view and will spam up the place trying in vain to prove it.
Thread is going down a bad road.
Zippy - these two will be pleading that their posts be deleted once this glorious building is complete, so let the consolation be that this banter won't continue indefinitely.
^ Which two are you referring to?
I want to see that view in 2015.
Read this very C-A-R-E-F-U-L-L-Y
The view that I described encompases the gothic style arches of the Brooklyn bridge. See on the right side of the picture??
Now as Brooklynrider describes it you will only be able to see it once you get past the tower portion, which incidentally is where the gothic arches are located.....
Thus from the above angle which is the best one to see the architectural symbiosis of gothic styles in the view will soon be blocked by the Beekman tower thus the view that I spoke of earlier will be lost.
We know that the WW is still to be vieable from other angles (nosh-t sherlock) but from that particular angle it will be lost, and the beekman does not improve that.
Could someone please be the bigger man and say, "OK, we agree to disagree" and end this petty argument? Or at the very least explain to us Wired New Yorkers what good will result from keeping it going? The level of contempt being shown here is alarming.
I will intervene by creating a distraction:
Would anyone like to discuss war crimes or Michelle Obama's bodacious booty?
PS: Has any skin started rising on the facade?
