If constructive criticism is maid (for example, discussing why there is a delay, and what are it's implications) is different. Simply criticizing, is attacking the people that spent years of work on a project and criticized them as though we knew how to do their job better (from the architects, to the structural and mechanical engineers). In front of such ignorance, there is only silence.

p.s. If there were these kind of attacks on any other tower in the world were I knew enough to counter-argue, and defend my argument, I would do it (in case nobody else did it). For the Chicago Spire for example, there is no need to do it, since there are a lot of more knowledgeable people that already do it.
dont worry, he throws around "@sshole" but its ok, he's just another troll, don't listen to what he says

Great! The theatre looks stunning, they did a great job there. When are they finishing the crown though? The tower doesn't look complete without it.

At this rate it's not going to be done until 2010! JK

I hope this is complete within the next few months.

Saw the show on this building on National Geographic Channel today... I didn't know this is actually 2nd-tallest in NYC?

Beautiful building. Seeing these pictures reminds me that, after seeing both Hong Kong and New York, it's the grid system that makes me love NYC so much. There's a brutal efficiency to it that I really admire.

Excellent shots! I like BOA Tower a lot. I really hate Verizon Building's new look! It looks like it straight from Third World countries. What are they thinking?!?
