Ugly Ass Functional & Simple Fourth Avenue Building Revealed

Ugly Ass Fourth and Baltic Bldg

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we're willing to consider the fact that we're simply the wrong beholder in the case of this buiding at 126 Fourth Avenue (at Baltic). In fact, we kind of liked it better when it was hidden behind scaffolding and netting. The building sits where an Exxon station used to be and, if the truth be told, the gas station was not necessarily any worse looking than this thing. Maybe that center strip will have magnificent decorative flourishes.

heard that this is going to be a Westin Hotel. Which, considering how long they are taking to finish it up, and lack of concern about finishing it for summer selling season, makes a good deal of sense. Also explains the ugly.
