Thursday, June 10, 2010 - 08:20 PM
New Yorkers not being retiring types, we've heard from citizens of all stripes about the architectural blights that drive you crazy. At the top of the list: condos−in all their sunlight-grabbing, neighorhood-dulling blandness. (Too many to list here.) Also the target of some verbal whoopings: Richard Meier's Grand Army Plaza and West Village structures, the redone Museum of Arts and Design, and the Cooper Union structure by Morphosis. (I gotta confess: I seriously dig that Morphosis building, so I'm going to have to respectfully disagree.) Also on the ire list: the smoke-puffing thingie on the south side of Union Square. (I'm with y'all on that one. It's heinous.)
Below, a visual round-up of some of your choices for ugliest buildings in NYC.
