Fantastic view from that part of Brooklin. It's amazing they don't build lines of tall apartment buildings there to take advantage of it.

Yeah, people suggesting a spire for this tower need to never breathe a word about architecture ever again.

A beautiful original skyscraper. I love the high quality cladding. Great addition for NY City

I dont think that a spire would suit this tower but i think that the should have some sort of a wavy roof design.

it's not quite sophisticated to compare the bow of all things with the beekman tower.
