The Times Tower.

Like the Flatiron Building, this tower occupied a triangular slice of terrain, but did so with much less finesse than the Flatiron. It's rather top-heavy and impractical, but I'd give anything to see it this way again. Unfortunately, it's been smothered under a deadening caul since Allied Chemical ruined it in the 60s. I'm not sure anyone even works there anymore - it's just a gigantic stand for billboards.

To the left, the famed Claridge Hotel, or Knickerbocker, if you prefer.
