4. and a construction site is dirty, not nice to observe,
5. a clean city is a city without constructions sites.

i will visit one time NYC when every works constructions sites will end.....
because Noise, nuisance, dirty, dusts, scaffolds....all this is not photogénic
Noise, nuisance, dirty, dusts, scaffolds = ugly
but NYC is amazing !

Okay, now I'm sorry for re - posting yet another beauty, but I'm an architecture lover and I just can't contain myself. I wanted to say that the lower portion of the building with the wavy stone facade looks as delicious as a Waffle.

I can honestly get all your points and I suppose all that you mentioned was previously discussed, about the city having too many construction sites, but all in all plenty of them will be finished pretty soon, especially the slim and extra tall residential beauties that look towards Central Park. On the other hand I gotta say I love all these U/C buildings because they make the city vibrant, every minute there is something happening, and even though I get all your points I still love to keep up with the progress that's being made. I love the ever changing New York.

I love both the greenery that climbs the building and the gray bricks.
