Bklink: Not Feeling the Fischer

Not everyone loves 20 Bayard Street on Karl Fischer Row. "I mean M. C. Escher couldn't find his way into this building. There's a central stair leading to two sweeping stairs up to the second level, what looks like a secret portal between the two "columns" straight ahead, and two flanking stairs that look they're townhouse entries. How the hell do you get into this place? Better yet, how do you get in if you're wheelchair bound?? If the answer is a chair lift, Karl Fisher deserves to lose his license to practice architecture in polite society - chair lifts should be a last resort in rehab projects."--Brooklyn 11211
