New York by Gehry

A few weeks ago, I watched a video on a fascinating new building in Manhattan.

“At 870 feet tall, New York by Gehry is the tallest residential tower in the Western Hemisphere and a singular addition to the iconic Manhattan skyline. For his first residential commission in New York City, master architect Frank Gehry has reinterpreted the design language of the classic Manhattan high-rise with undulating waves of stainless steel that reflect the changing light, transforming the appearance of the building throughout the day. Gehry’s distinctive aesthetic is carried across the interior residential and amenity spaces with custom furnishings and installations.”

Now I’m not sure how clear it is that I love heights. I discovered this obsession backpacking through Europe, climbing whatever buildings gave me access, and hiking up hills just to get those few photos of all the miniature things below. There’s just something about heights that brings me peace- strange isn’t it since so many people fear heights!

The thought of climbing this new building by Frank Gehry while they still have apartment viewings is motivating me to sort out my financial situation SO much.

Just take a look at some of the views:

Who’s coming with me?
