UGLY

Echo and I were at Columbus Circle today and I was disappointed to see what they did to this old building. I think it looks really boring and ugly the new facade looks like a Air conditioner or something else industrial, gray, and depressing. Couldn't they have kept the spirit of the old building and just added some windows? (that was a problem with the old building). A lot of people had said that the old building wasn't "beautiful" but was important enough to preserve, but I disagree I had always liked the building the way it was and I'm not ashamed to say I thought it was beautiful. But then I again I like most 60's Arch- and think a lot of new buildings like the redone 2 Columbus Circle lack character and look drab.
