Who Loves 17 State Street?!

I love this building, I think it's highly underrated and not talked about much, give it some of the attention it deserves!

i do! it looks simple, yet so elegant!

but i wish 1 battery park plz and 1 state st plz buildings behind it weren't that lame as 17 state.

many of the downtown nyc buildings r quite underrated, like american int'l and 60 wall. both r great but not as well known as others in midtown.

Anyone notice the coincidence that the tower is located in Battery Park, and looks to me kind of like a battery? Or am I just going nuts?

More pics...









Here's some shots of it in the skyline...

Hmm, it's not a ugly tower, it's ok, but it's not my style! I prefer the block just behind this one!

This one reminds me of Istanbul...

Too me this is the first building that catches my attention when I look at pictures of Manhattan.
This building needs more attention so does 60 wall street.
