It puts the definition of urbanism on new levels (such greater heights).

Do you think that lighting fixture about 1 minute in is for the braces? Or is this just something getting outfitted for the client on this floor?

Side note, does anyone know how to embed Youtube videos?

I would be glad if the whole building was turned to a freaking playground, more so with the big ugly brown monsters next to 56 leonard!

The Long Lines Building is amazing and should be untouched ...

Not really sure they could do much with it... it does look kind of neat as is... definitely a relic of an older era. The verizon building is pretty ugly though, I agree they should reclad the whole think. Just looks... odd as is.

Honestly, just looks like some cheap flood lights. Don't know if that's part of any lighting scheme, but it would look pretty stupid on a building like this, especially when the rest of the complex uses a very miniscule amount of LED lighting on WTC1/WTC4

Right! I just realized it looks better up close but from far away it's probably the worst looking skyscraper in my opinion if not after a couple of similar monsters that look completely out of place. I don't know the names of those ones but they are the fattest (probably) highrises in NY which stand right on the left of 56 leonard and opposite it as when viewed from One WTC
