My buddy Joey over at Curbed was kind enough to bring this fugfest featuring two buildings from none other than the Garden Spot of the Universe to my attention. So which excrescence do YOU think is worse: 200 Franklin Street or 524 Manhattan Avenue? Personally (and I write this as the “tipster” mentioned in the photo credits) I lean towards 200 Franklin. It looks like am ionic air purifier date-raped a butt plug. Or as one commenter, Restless, puts it all too eloquently:
I’d be ashamed to be seen entering either one, but have to give the Eye Damage Award to 524 Manhattan — because it looks like Harry was serious, while we all know Karl scribbles his designs in his sleep, as therapy, hoping to transfer his nightmares to the world at large.
I couldn’t have said it any better myself. Point, click and vote fellow Greenpointers!
