"Do I like the tower's design = no. Do I think it's appropriate for the area = yes. Disapproving a major new addition to the skyline based on emotional objections is a major disservice to New York. The argument that Tower Verre would create significant traffic congestion, strain local services, and generally create insurmountable negative externalities is BS. I'm not a fan of Nouvel's work but think this tower has a legitimate right to be built." [MoMA Mia! Starring Jean Nouvel, David Childs & the Peanut Gallery]
