...****** eh
Someone is going to say I'm out of my mind but I like that building, which its name is the William Beaver House, maybe because of its color, I don't know. But I still think it's the oddest building in NYC when it comes to cladding.

This is very simple but not so ugly. It's better than Freedom Tower for me

Freedom tower isn't built yet so how could it be better than a non existing structure?

Yes, it's weird, but that's what happened to me. First I liked it, then I hated it, now I'm not sure...

You're right. It reminds me of buildings from Russia or Istanbul. Not my style.
