This has become an iconic New York shot:

Apartments are quickly being leased out.

Unfortunately after seeing the design so much, Ive gotten used to it. However, it's still a beautiful tower! So glad it was built in New York and not somewhere abroad. THis shows that Gehry can do highrises too, and in spectacular form.

I think this is perhaps the only building in the world to look as good as the render.
