This photograph was taken with a Panasonic LX7
It’s the Warwick Hotel. But what’s that tall building there in the distance that’s under construction? Is it? Yes, it’s One57, soon to be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.

So that’s where One57 is! (I had a hard time visualizing the address.) The Warwick is a nice place to stop for a martini after the Museum of Modern Art.

Personally, I’d go black and white on this one, but I am still fond of the photo in colour.

Come on Lion, you can level with us. Is all this One57 link-bait to get your new blog noticed?
If it is, but you’d rather not cop to it, then deep-six this comment. I’ll have my answer.

Yeah, maybe all of the 90-or-so people who own $7 million+ condos in that building will start reading.

The buyers have more money than sense. It would be a long walk up all those stairs if the power goes out because of some natural or man made disaster. And the place will be a magnet for crackpots to blow up or knock down.
Disreputable* but fantastically rich people from Russia , China, Saudi Arabia, etc. will be attracted to the status of living there.
*there is no honest way to get rich in corrupt countries.

You have posted quite a few pictures of that building. Are you planning on living there maybe? I’d be afraid someone would fly a plane into it or blow it up.

The Warwick was one of the hotels a company I worked for used to put up out-of-town clients. Another as the Rhiga Royal, which was one of my favorite places to go when I was in the neighborhood wearing a suit and needed to drop a deuce. Really lovely wood stalls in the bathroom, high-quality, cloth-like paper towels, etc. Very civilized.

If only they made facades like they used to.

Not really a fan of the art deco Warwick Hotel or the glass-hanging-on-steel-frames style that now dominates.
