It has been a long, long time since I have literally stopped in my tracks and murmured:

God, that building is really ugly.

I honestly thought I was getting jaded. Then I walked by 602 Manhattan Avenue this afternoon and got my religion back.

God, that building is really ugly.

Congratulations, Francis Albert Construction and Philip Toscano, “Architect” for keeping it real. Ugly, that it is.*
