We've been staring at it for years, but all it took Scouting NY was one trip to Julian Schnabel's Palazzo Chupi to identify the pink palace's true architectural heritage: Disney World's Tower of Terror. All that talk about Stanford White and Addison Mizner and the Moorish, Turkish, and Venetian influences? In reality Gesamkunstwerk is probably what Schnabel yelled the first time the elevator dropped. Oddly, it's Chupi that's been the scarier ride!
