Thats Stuy Town, a kind of middle class housing complex. They are actually very high quality living. The projects are off to the left of the East Village on avenue D and farther south around the W'burg bridge.

Not from Brooklyn.

To topic: Will Beekman Place have the highest occupied floor in NYC downtown for a while, surpassing Trump Building's 69th floor at 255m? Could be close to that figure, I suppose...

Anyhow: this is actually downtown's highest flat roof - only the spire of American International Building and the crown of Trump Building are taller!

Oh Pace University how I wish they would stop ripping me off and maybe start using there money towards removing there hideous plaza. I truly wish they would sell the campus in Westchester and create a vertical campus so the developeer actually makes some money.

I love how it is close to the surrounding older buildings. It seems to grow up from them.
