Lovely, just lovely.

Those double-height windows on top crown the design perfectly.

Ok, I'm sorry but that looks like something out of Inception! It's crazy, I mean I hate the look of it but in some way's I love it it just messes with the head as to the architecture, the curves make it weird but oh so unique....I would love to actually be able to visit this building.

Stunning, brilliant. I wonder why the top floors are purely mechanical. Put that stuff on the roof and use those top floors as observation, restaurants, penthouses...anything but BLANK WINDOWS!

Wow, I'm seeing this project just now and I have to say: congratulations NYC, with this addition to your great city! It's got a very urban look; classic aspects but modern at the same time; not too 'sweet'... All great!

This must be the most beautiful skyscraper I've seen in years (if ever). Absolutely amazing. For some reason I think of Gaudi' when I look at it.

I thought the very same thing.

This building is an iconic work of art.

New York is a city with so many iconic structures and places but know this building will become ( if not already ) another to add to the impressive list.........

A couple of times I have been tempted to post nasty comments about this building. I have to admit its appeal is growing on me.

I am not a fan at all of it. It looks messy. Congratulations though I know a lot of New Yorkers are glad to have it as an addition to the skyline. The height is the only thing I like about it.
Well I take my messy comment back. It looks messy from afar. Up close I can appreciate the curves.
