What would Friday be without a journey to the far West Side for a look at Starchitect trickster Jean Nouvel's Vision Machine? A big bore, that's what! So forget about lawsuits and rent control for a minute and get a load of the puzzle of steel rising at 100 Eleventh Avenue. Precision abounds amidst this tower of visual tricks. Hard to believe that some folks worry Mr. Nouvel might come up short when putting the pieces together. This cryptogram of condos still has lots of units on hand for folks who can reach into the old top-hat and come out with a clump of cash.
