The hulking steel structure between 58th and 59th on West End has been in place for months, but now we have glass! John Jay College is building a 600,000 sf 14 story tower, plus 5 story "urban campus" with the help of Turner Construction and Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill.
I think that I have figured out what I like about glass curtains. It is not the curtains themselves that are nice, they have become exceedingly ubiquitous, but the reflection of light, sky, and clouds are pleasant. Now that I have that figured out, I guess I can just find some open space and enjoy nature without the help of sheet glass.
