I don't know about One Vanderbilt.... It's massive, it's impressive, it's a super tall, but it looks like one of those fake skyscrapers from a superhero movie where the evil corporation resides and the final battle takes place. I look at it and feel there's something off in the design.

well..most skyscrapers are designed by `local heroes`. the top guys of the biz go for more prestigious, less limited projects.

As a matter of fact I have very little appreciation for the architecture of Rotterdam and whenever somebody describes structures like Markthal or De Rotterdam as iconic I need to try really hard to suppress my gag reflex. What I wanted to say is, both 432 Park Avenue and Hudson Yards feel out of place in NYC as they lack a certain type of class the city has been always known for.

I absolutely adore the panoramic photo of New York posted on the top of the previous page and I absolutely adore how pleasingly elegant and confident looks 432 Park Avenue in that panoramic photo of New York.

I'm pleasantly surprised more and more taller buildings are built in Tribeca.. It'll definitely move Downtowns skyline north. Funny how 56 Leonard looks wide in that picture.


But still, the lowrise constructions around NYC are of superb quality!
