....there are architects and there is Frank Gehry The Genius,Mozart of architecture...
New York by Gehry is a gift from God...
It's a bit of a shame the three greatest architects on earth(Gehry,Steven Holl,Thom Mayne)are hardly represented in NY!..

You're right about Gehry, but I can't agree with you on the other two. You think Holl and Mayne are better than Hadid and Calatrava? I can't see that one.

Quite a contrast to the Gehry building. Not a good one, just a large one.

they are now on the parapet and crown element. For better of for worse, the crown will give this tower a standout presence on the skyline.

Nothing Gehry has ever built deserves to stay up ... every last thing he's designed should be torn down yesterday.

His buildings are offensive and insulting.

And you probably should be on a monster truck forum instead of commenting on architecture...

Nope, I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be. Sir Norman Foster is a brilliant architect ... IM Pei is a brilliant architect. Richard Meier is a brilliant architect.
Jean Nouvel is a brilliant architect. Rafael Vinoly is a brilliant architect.

Gehry is not.

...Commenting on a building that stands right next to one of the most beautiful tower ever built... Beekman Place by Frank Gehry.

You are just like extreme nationalist or anarchist. You see only black or white, any discussion is pointless.

yep. And I'm sure it will look great from that angle. It will fill up a gap in the skyline.
