Christmas all year round

During the walk, I keep thinking that some people don’t have to wait for Christmas. Behind me and all along the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, there are apartment buildings with large windows and balconies. The lower level ones may be less lucky but those higher up enjoy this glorious unobstructed view day-in day-out.

The Ugly Giant

wpt20161118_183200

Arrived in December 2015 to rival the Gehry skyscraper – in height but not in beauty. 432 Park Avenue is seen by many as an eyesore; its super tall, super thin square shape appears like rising out of nowhere and bears no relation to neighouring buildings. When the weather is low the top floors are lost in the clouds giving literal meaning to the tallest residential building in the world.

Here in b&w because even eyesores look good in it.
