We've been closely tracking the feedback to Brownstoner's provocative query, "Are All New Developments Ugly?" in which he challenged his readers to "point out any new buildings that have gone up in recent years that they think qualify as architecturally significant or at least attractive." A smattering of suggestions emerged -- the much-praised State Street condos, a couple developments in Park Slope, some "smaller condo buildings" in Williamburg -- but the conversation really took off when someone brought up 55 Berry. Most beautiful development in Brooklyn? Eh, probably not. Most over-the-top website? Yes, def. Finally, a work of art that unites the people.
