Yesterday's news that NYU could potentially stash some kids away in Long Island City got us thinking: Hey, what's up with the school's newest East Village dorm? You know, the one that preserved the St. Ann's Church façade for use as some sort of grand entrance? The 26-story monster that even NYU is slightly embarrassed about? Yeah, that one. So we swung by 12th Street and Fourth Avenue and, uh, jeez. Wow that thing is depressing. Did they really have to opt for "chunky puke" as a color selection? Spit on the Bible, why don't you!
The new view from Third Avenue.
Floor-to-ceiling windows? You shouldn't have. Really, you shouldn't have.
