Tough call when you're sitting on hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate.

Yeah, I don't know enough about it to say, but it's not as if Midtown doesn't have quite a few worthy candidates for demolition or renovation. 80% of the buildings are dogshit.

Yes, all kinds of buildings should be burned to the ground before this one, but unless you're living with Bloomberg-level finances it has to be hard to say no to development money for architectural posterity.

 

Maybe some preservationist doo-gooders or an angry architect will chain themselves to the front door.

I have no sense of humour so for me it's just shock value shit.

Not at all.

My girlfriend was telling me that she thinks the only "marketing" that works on me is coffee marketing and she's right. If I see that picture of the steaming hot cup of coffee surrounded by beans on the side of a street cart I just need a cup.
