The parts between Midtown and Downtown are one the most beautiful and livable areas (small shops, nice restaurants, etc) of the city, with good density as well. No need to make huge buildings in those areas of historic buildings from the 1880s. Beekman place is growing out of what used to be a neighborhood of Greenwich village like buildings from the Civil War or before, it was destroyed in the 60s by a madmen thinking like you: build, build, without thought. I suggest you take a look at The Destruction of Lower Manhattan.

I'd hate to see any of it go to be replaced by something like Tour Verre or other crappy glass boxes or architect's doodles that they call "work." On topic, I'm glad this tower only has a few more floors to go of cladding. I usually hold out on judging a tower until the outside is completely finished, but I must say, this is truly one of Gehry's greatest works, and I look forward to seeing it in person next time I'm in New York. I'm surprised I didn't notice it when I was there a year ago: I walked right through City Hall, and didn't even notice it.
Because it went up very fast...

You must be on crack.

Manhattan would significantly decline if those livable gorgeous low rise neighborhoods were wiped out (Tribeca, West Village, Greenwich Village, SoHo, etc) for skyscrapers.

Have you completely lost your mind?

What do you guys expect on SSC? Half the users here don't give a shit about the cities themselves, rather the tall buildings they can see in pictures online.

By the way, recladding the Verizon building would be the best thing to happen to Lower Manhattan ever.

I agree. It's hideous. Reminds me of the AT&T building here in OKC.

And wow, this is an amazing tower.

no beekman in a class of it owe. Plus that building doesn't have any carves so it would look like the flat side. But I'm sure they'd try to work it in

Here are close-ups of the glass that will be used on the Verizon recladding. Permits were in place but everything stalled when the economy collapsed. This should restart in a year or so.

I have to stick my far away nose in here...............New York..Manhattan is what it is because it has Lower Manhattan and Mid Town with the marvellous mix of everything in between.( that's not ignoring so much else but referring to this post)....it is not meant to be huge skyscrapers on every inch of the place....It is spectacular New York because it has so much diversity ...and I love the place just as it is.....and know it as the never finished city but a city evolving knowing it has to hold onto all it has that makes it so unique.....hmm I don't have a way with words but that's how I feel......and I see my post refers to the reply to the post that got me to make my post not the reply above...sorry
