Indeed. But didn't they intend to give it some glassy makeover soon?

I hated Beekman at first. When I saw it in person everything changed. It is a striking piece of architecture and really needs to be seen in person. It is now one of my favorites in NYC. The top pic is awesome!

I notice that one of the tags for Beekman say ugly. I guest some people don't have any taste.

That top picture shows you don't need super height to be super stunning.

To pewter sculpture fans out there like me, a company is now offering a replica of this building. I've ordered a couple replicas from them previously, and their quality is top notch. I just placed my order for this one, can't wait for it!

The undulating exterior looks like an updated version of Gaudi's Casa Mila.
