Morning View - Hearst Tower

Almost 80 years after the 1928 completion of its six-story base, the 46-story tower of the Hearst was added. The world headquarters for the Hearst publishing empire (SF Chronicle, Good Housekeeping, etc), the Hearst Tower was the first skyscraper to break ground in NYC after 9/11, and its innovative diamond-shape pattern has won architectural awards. My beloved Farmboyz adore the Hearst from afar, but not from within, and Eric of We, Like Sheep doesn't like it at all. What do you think? Some days I hate it, but some days I have to agree with the Farmboyz assessment: "At least it's not boring." Lots of pics here.

UPDATE: Here's a full shot of Hearst Tower.
