Overlooking Columbus

The Time Warner Center overlooking Columbus overlooking the traffic circling around Central Park. Headquarters of Time Warner and the studios of CNN. A world of its own with luxury condos, a five-star hotel, a concert hall, a shopping mall, a fitness center, I don’t know how many restaurants and a Whole Foods supermarket.

Some residents don’t ever have to leave the premises, I would imagine.

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.

New York by Gehry skyscraper on Spruce Street, Lower Manhattan. Playfully edited but you can see the real thing by clicking on the link. At the time of its completion in February 2011 it was the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. That was before it was vanquished by its rival on Park Avenue (photo coming up next).
