What is it with these architects? NYC has some of the most spectacular buildings in the country, and most of the new stuff is just plain JUNK!

I totally agree, I like allot of the classic building, but this new one is all curtain glass and sheet metal.

Hards80 Feb 8, 2010 6:39 PM

i am guessing it is much cheaper to produce the latter?

i like the sepia tone here, gives it a dated look.

Thanks Hards,

I kinda like the results of the dated look, with the old stone fed court house up front and that monster going up in the back ground.

Latters are even cheaper to produce these days. In the old days they were made of wood and heavy as hell. Now latters are made of aluminum and not to be trusted.:homer:

I like that shot shoturtle.... I'm not really looking forward to see this construction site when I'm in NYC :)

Maggo,

Just don't come now, the winds are howling. You do not think that NYC is that windy. But when it blows. It is freezing. Also be prepare for culture shock. The first time my wife came to NYC, it was very overwhelming with the pace of life here. And she is from Frankfurt.

That will be one of the tallest building downtown till the new tower goes up at WTC site. Which will be 1776 feet,kind of overwhelming. The Burj in Dubai was way to dominating in my opinion. It just dwarf everything in the city. Higher is nice, but there is a point where it is just to much, imho.;)

I don't think it's just a question of money. There's no law that says that a glass structure HAS to be ugly. Dave

Well I wouldnt climb a glass latter now matter how pretty it was.
