All that said, I don't think it's a bad looking building. Those triangular facets are pretty striking.

WTC4 is also stunning as well. New Yorks invisible building (From the right angles).

Get ready to be addicted. And I mean seriously addicted because this city will make you depressed when you leave. Its one of those places that you will just want to come back to again and again. The street life, and just the general beauty is something that will keep you yearning for more. I'm 45 miles away from NYC, been there so many times, and I still to this day love that dam city everytime I'm in it. Never gets boring!
