Ha ha, this one is unbelievably grotesque! Looks like a gigantic platypus standing on caterpillar tracks and doll legs! I wonder how on earth they allowed this joke be built... the architect must certainly be laughing his ass off at them!

I like big buildings because they're fun to run around on the inside. the glass really messes this one up though for the most part....

60 Wall Street
Exterior...Blah, The location is not helping, maybe if it was located in upper Manhattan.


Interior...It's okay.



The Fang Yuan takes the cake. Can't find a interior photo, most likely would break lens.
