There is just no way to deny it. Those are going to be some idiotically sweet condos in that there tower.
Tower Trivia: Designed by Napoleon LeBrun & Sons and completed in 1909 the Tower, along with it's 11-story base which was completed in 1893, stands 700 feet tall at the foot of Madison Avenue. It's architects took inspiration from the Campanile in Venice and produced a New York classic. The minute hands on each off it's 4 16.5" foot diameter clocks weighs half a ton!
Sigh. We loved this building when we were little.
