The historical contrast between the Sherry Netherland and the GM building is fantastic. Only 40 Wall Street and One Chase Manhattan Plaza can rival such a pair.

The GM Building is among the ugliest prominent monsters of the city imho.
Now with 432 Park Ave in its neighborhood, which is just as awful or even worse for its sore thumb appearance.
Central Park needs to be cleaned from such boxy mess. A park like CP calls for "organic", classical architecture.

Anyone with even a superficial knowledge of the GM Building would recognize it as a failure of urban design and architecture. It derives its impact solely in dominating and disfiguring the skyline, not unlike 432 Park Avenue. Some people seem to appreciate that--either developers who want to leave their mark, or people who want to be overawed and diminished.

Let's not forget that the GM building rose from the rubble of the Savoy Plaza, which helped precipitate the preservation movement.



What a loss, and what a diminishment of Grand Army Plaza as well as a harmonious and varied urban tableau. Imagine the contrast between the picturesque Central Park and the modern towers of Midtown.

And of course decades later Macklowe would demolish the Drake hotel to build 432 Park Avenue to assert dominance and assuage his wounded ego for losing the GM Building. Historic mistakes resonate through time.

The GM Building is deffinitely a failure in urban planning, but I think that from an aesthetic standpoint the contrast between the GM Building and the Sherry is fascinating. Cant argue with your sentiment regarding 432 Park. That nasty pile is one of the worst skyscrapers ever realized. I dont think it possesses a single redeeming feature. Thankfully all those other park towers are on the way so that its horrendous prominence will be diminished.

The GM Building is also quite ordinary. Don't see anything beautiful about it. Just another modernist box ruining a sea of historic beauties.
