Frank Gehry's 76-Story Dick Joke Tops Off

New, 13 comments

Can it really be that Frank Gehry's 76-story Beekman Tower (well, 77, but apartments go up to 76) has reached its highest point? Evidence supports that claim. Oh, and there's this totally amazing e-mail we just received:

You missed Frank F’n Gehry this morning at the Beekman Tower topping off ceremony. The most classic one liner ever. Bruce Ratner is giving his speech praising unions. Blah blah blah. Then he calls up the "great" Gehry to say a few words...

Frank gets up to the mic and pauses...

He looks up to the sky and the 76-story building for about 3 seconds...

Looks at everyone and says...

“NO VIAGRA”

You'll never look at all that rippling steel the same way. Speaking of, check out this very cool Flickr photo from an apparent Beekman insider. Is the undulation getting anyone hot? You know, other than the Gehrmeister?
