We haven't checked in on the still-under-construction NYU dorm at Fourth Avenue and 12th Street in the East Village in a while, but God's Dorm (nicknamed as such because it kept one part of the old St. Ann's Church in a bizarre scheme to incorporate it into the dorm design) does not have a friend in broker-blogger Andrew Fine: "Yes, it was a beautiful structure, but to preserve such a small portion to adorn the sidewalk of faceless 26 story dorm is an insult. I really wish they had gone 100% one way or another. But, perhaps, this is a good thing. Perhaps, this will stand as a monument to our warped priorities or a warped culture, and future generations will learn from it. In the meantime, it is one of the most hideous displays in the city."
