While the issues with Sam Chang and his McSam Hotel Group are well documented?are very well documented?to this point we've had no reaction from the man himself. But we're thinking that maybe this McSam project on 24th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues is his way of saying "Eff off!" without actually having to say it. Or, as a phototipster put it: "Wonder what reaction the architect is hoping to spark in this hotel's future guests as they step from their cabs to check in . . . Giant Pez dispenser? LegoLand? Early 1970's 'municipal mistake' revival?" Um, all of the above?
