Photographer's Note

A new building has almost been completed in Tribeca, and it looks like a giant Jenga puzzle! :-)

This residential skyscraper has 57 floors, and has been described as "houses stacked in the sky". Cantilevered balconies create the unique design, and apartments sell for between $3.5 and $15 million dollars. Needless to say, I won't be able to afford one. ;-)

The architects are a Swiss firm, Herzog and De Meuron, and there is going to be a unique feature beside the entrance: a mini version of the famed Chicago "Cloud Gate" sculpture by artist Anish Kapoor.

Tribeca doesn't have as many skyscrapers as other Manhattan neighborhoods, and this building really stands out next to all of the older, low-rise structures.

In the WS is a close-up.
