I'll never get used to that flat side.
Sublime tower nonetheless

It's an incredible building. It looks just like ... a skycraper should look like ! But that flat side, as you say it's ought to look like the melting ice side, how it's seen from Brooklyn Bridge.

finally! and to add a "final statement" about beekman: it's easily one of the best skyscrapers that NY has ever built for a long, long time. 'nough said.

Really spectacular cladding. The flat side still bothers me, however. I have no problems with going for a more convenient cladding to blend into the surroundings more, but Gehry could have at least given that side some setbacks or something to make it less boring.

This tower blocks the best view of 1 WTC from the Manhattan Bridge, and I can't get over that.
