I like that 60s building. Looks vintage.

60s buildings were not planned well and have not aged well, they were nice for their time but not today

This will be the tallest building in TriBeCa. Not really a big deal but it's something.

101 TriBeCa will be even taller.

I don't really consider either to be truly in Tribeca. They're both a little south.

30 PP is closer to city administration (which technically isn't a neighborhood) and 101 Tribeca is closer to BPC and the WTC/financial district.
I don't want to be picky, so I'll just note both as downtown.

Hardly a triangle.

Meh, every generation said that about every building style in the past.

Maybe, but in this case it's really true. Modernist architecture blows.

Well in the 60's, they thought that Victorian architecture was tacky and horrible... the cycle repeats over and over again, let's see peoples opinions in 20, 30, 40 years time...
I'm not saying you're wrong, but you can't just say it's true

And only in the 70s people started liking art deco again, before then they were 'those crappy Depression-era monstrosities'

Art Deco buildings were viewed as "monstrosities?" Where did you get this information? At least in New York, buildings of that era and style remained some of the most desirable real estate throughout the post-war, International Style-dominant era.

It has happened for all styles when they reached 30-50 years old, they are just seen as outdated and tacky monstrosities that we finally escaped from. I have read some news article clip from that time period that mentioned these 'Depression-era monstrosities' but I can't find it now.

Victorian styles definitely saw their criticism. Mark Twain and Harry Truman called the Eisenhower Executive Office Building the 'ugliest building in America' and Oscar Wilde called the Chicago Water Tower a 'castellated monstrosity covered in pepperboxes.'

"Everyone thinks that the architecture, decorative arts, costumes and similar products of their immediate predecessors are hideous,” wrote the president of the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 1957.

ThatOneGuy is right. Criticism of Victorian and Art Deco styles is not a thing of the past, either. They are publicly popular but deeply unpopular in architectural schools, mainly because the professors came of age in the era when Brutalism and Modernism were king and because architecture has mostly lost through attrition and disuse the skills required to design (especially on a massive scale) the intricate structures of the pre-war period and tries to cover this inadequacy by claiming that detail is a bad thing.

The name originally only applied to Lispenard Street, which does indeed form a triangle with Canal and West Broadway.
