Take on that big ugly middle finger building on the NY skyline

I'm the furthest thing from an architecture snob but I have to say that there is really no uglier thing on this green earth than that new residential building called 432 Park. The design is uninspiring and the fact that it almost looks taller than iconic buildings like the Empire State Building and the Freedom Tower is just...wrong. It is like the architects, and the Chinese buyers of the apartments, are giving the middle finger to the city. You just can't build a building as tall as the Freedom Tower, and the idea of some building throwing a gigantic shadow over Central Park is the biggest middle finger of all..
