Going Up

Another tower going up. Looks like all the others with the plain street-level barriers, yellow crane spires, wrappings of orange safety.

But then it hit me that it’s a building I’ve seen renderings of in the NYTimes Magazine. It’s this amazing jenga-like tower of boxes jutting all about. It creates outdoor spaces, breaks up the monotony of parallel lines rising to the sun, and otherwise makes it darn pretty.

Walking, shooting, paying attention.
