Oh, makes sense now, so ground zero area and southern Manhattan is called "downtown Manhattan"?

Well, Downtown is often referred to as Lower Manhattan.

Took this the other day -- the impact of the BofA tower within the Midtown Skyline can really be seen:

not tall enough, design nothing special, spire too tall desperate attempt at height, the only really good thing about this one is that it's LEED certified.

This tower has a very daring shape - it's not your typical 6th Avenue box.

Why does it say COM at the top? It obviously isn't.

Not these doors again, far too dangerous and more modern publics are using it. Why not the automatic 2 glass doors?

They're not dangerous at all. I go through revolving doors all the time and never see any problems with them. Those automatic 2 glass doors let air conditioning out in the summer, and heat out in the winter. Revolving doors don't do that - they keep the climate controlled air separate from the outside air, making climate control inside the lobby much easier.

It's a virtual necessity for large climate-controlled spaces.

I actually quite like the door and the writing, it has an Art Deco feel to it.

Another piece of glass falls from the tower, this time from the 51st floor.
