    This tower is a landmark. I'd like to see a Gehry high rise in the HY, and one in the heart of Midtown.

    Not sure how he could top this one without duplicating it.

    A torqued one with a facade like this would be nice -- like a tall version of what he did in HK.

    A rippled faced on the south side, more even setbacks on the east-west wings, a contextual base, a crown/spire.... If anything, IMHO, as great and amazing as 3/4 of the facade is, there is still much more room for improvement, and likely easy to top (no pun) by duplicating.

    Caught fantastic uh... anti-crepuscular rays streaming from the Gehry building last Thursday morning - while crepuscular rays emanated from the WTC 1 tower. Have to share!

    The street level facade is a crime against humanity
