I Heart Frank Gehry

I continually enjoy our unobstructed view of the new and gorgeous New York by Gehry, which is just a block away on Spruce Street. I’ve watched this building from inception and have seen it grow and near completion over the past few years. It’s really a magnificent, commanding structure and as many times as I’ve seen it, it’s still as exciting and meaningful as the first.
According to the site, “at 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and a singular addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry's distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.”
