Morning View - Lever House

Built in 1951, the Lever House is considered the "quintessential and seminal glass box International Style" skyscraper. So says Wikipedia. While I understand its historical place in architecture, I find the Lever House just as deadly dull as the bazillion copies that followed. After falling into disrepair towards the end of the last century, there was a major renovation beginning in 1998. Since then there have been sculptures from superstar artists on display in its courtyard (Koons, Haring), but right now the featured piece is a 15 foot Hello Kitty by Tom Sachs. For realz.
