Hmm. I’ve been wrong before, but 2003 may be not so horrid, as I see they’ve decided not to build that upchuck of a new Guggenheim in Lower Manhattan. No, trust me — it was a wretched shiny building and it would have been a misery to all within sight of it. I was in Seattle for another Gehry project and really, the joke was on the city. Consider NYC saved from a terrible blemish.
