I’ve just come back from, amongst other things, having a look at the “new and improved” 2 Columbus Circle building. The scaffolding is coming down and you can really see what’s been done to it. So I had a look.
I’m just going to put this out there- It’s fucking ugly. As in it’s significantly worse than what was there to begin with, and the original was well known for the controversy it created on that score. If this is supposed to be considered an improvement, we have problems.
There. I’ve said it, and I stand by it.
Photos and more on the topic to follow, because this is pissing me off.
