Wonderful Photos! I still think this building's proportions are too squat but it looks very nice. I can only imagine all the wiring and equipment going in it right now.

It's appropriate that you refer to the Goldman Sachs philosophy........I'm a huge subscriber to the "less is more" philosophy...........in the case of this building.
Ps..........I don't mind the architecture...it's kind of crazy for me to see New York evolve past my last visit in 2007.....New York is never complete ! What a town!

Its amazing how much Staten Island has developed over the past 20 years. I have several picture books of Manhattan and they all include a standard shot of lower Manhattan, much like this one, and you can see the amazing growth of that Island.

The island is almost completely covered in lights now... as compared to a picture from 1990 or so, when there were still large dark, undeveloped areas.

Well, it's a Bilderberg tower, but it is nice.

Better say nothing, or the Bohemian Club members will find you... *gg*

btw, yes it's a very nice tower and it fits perfectly in the skyline.
