Okay, I have to admit I thought those overhangs would be tacky, but they turned out pretty freaking great.

Yeah, they actually look really nice and blend with the building design perfectly. Almost like big garage doors that swing open to let people in. I'm curious though, where does rain water or melting snow drain to? I'm assuming there is some sort of built in drain system that we can't see.

Maybe they made a thematic choice and left the overhangs drain-less, spewing rainwater violently out into the street. The building is supposed to be a waterfall, after all...

I highly doubt that, but the images of a few billionaires getting completely soaked while trying to exit their Mercedes S65 limos would be priceless. I guess it would be changed the following day after a $22k suit got ruined.

They look great. I also like how the lighting is integrated into the overhangs with frosted panels to dim the light.

nope, but it probably isn't one of the legendary NYC sewer alligators, too small and the nose isn't above water.

There are those times the wife tells you to sleep on the couch. Just go downstairs to the Hyatt and "sleep on the couch"
Or, this could be the perfect place to put up the Mistress if the wife is upstairs. "Honey, I'm going for a stroll"
