Buongiorno, amici!

The glass is rising, and it is as beautiful as Turandot!

Wow, another stunning building for NYC. This tower is so sublime. I can't imagine having the penthouse, what a view it would be. Some people are so lucky. The design is sensational. What a unique design. I can't believe it, it truly is something to behold.

33 Thomas St is awesome. It is like a mountain in the city. Seriously, it is strangely popular. If you want a building to hate, I present to you 375 Pearl Street; AKA: the Verizon building.

I have murderous thoughts whenever I'm near that building....
Actually, I'd be curious to know how that managed to go up without any complains. It must be a 60's building, which explains it.

The 80s and 90s produced far worse than anything from the 60s. 60s is historic.
Especially in the suburbs...

What I meant to say, is that I wonder if it went up in the 60s - before we had a lot of the current review process. Not really a comment on the period/style itself.

I would like 375 pearl better if it wasn't in such a prominent spot right by the Brooklyn Bridge. If it was buried in midtown among skyscrapers it wouldn't be too bad

That 33 St. Thomas is a powerfully ugly building. What were they thinking?

33 Thomas belongs in a dystopic hellhole of a city. Certainly not New York.

Well, I think the Verizon Building is one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. It's geometrical shapes are very elegant and the facade gives a very unique, Giza pyramid-like look to it. I never understood why people hated this building

Because it actually has something overwhelming and very confidential.
Reminds me of a giant external hard drive.
That building has nothing ugly;it's just in the wrong location.
Personnaly i would "relocate"that baby in beautiful Brasilia...

In short, they were thinking about protecting the eastern seaboard's critical telecommunication infrastructure.

It was originally designed to house AT&T's long-distance line switches, very sensitive and very important equipment. No windows, no interference. It holds ultra-secure data centers now, amongst other things (think rows and rows of super-chilled servers). I read somewhere that it can be entirely self-sufficient for 2 weeks and is capable of withstanding a nuclear blast (it was built at the height of the Cold War, after all). I believe a lot of transatlantic cabling terminates here as well.

Personally, I think it's pure Gotham. I love it.

Strange, I thought this topic was about 56 Leonard, not 33 St Thomas.

A lot more glass has gone up since this photo. It looks like mirrors.

Do you need to upload photos to a Flicker account or something before posting?

yes, most people use flickr; you then copy the full URL to the picture(not the page in which the picture is located), then posting here you either press the 'Insert Image' icon or by typing [img] before the URL and [/img] after it
