200 West Makes Critic Cranky

New, 3 comments

The best thing Real Deal architecture critic James Gardner has to say about 200 West 72nd Street, aka 2075 Broadway, is that it makes the Alexandria, the "pallid eyesore" across the street, look good. 200 West's "mongrelized aesthetic...is basically art deco in the heavily geometric and vaguely Chrysler-esque flanges that make up the staggered set-backs....But such adornments do little to enliven or relieve the sense of value engineering and general tedium." But hey, once Trader Joe's opens on the first two floors, no one's going to be looking at the rest of the building anyway. [Real Deal; previously]
