    It’s really a very good retro design, but resisting oversized windows just couldn’t be done with today’s fishbowl fad.

    I have not seen rock-faced rusticated masonry in a long time. Real fireplaces were outlawed in NYC in 2014. One might question whether the electronic replacements are really necessary. A faux aquarium might be more interesting. Otherwise, it is a stunning building.
