A crooked house

The other day I was in a cab that cut across 17th Street to get to the West Side Highway. Out the window I saw the craziest looking building under construction so I made it my mission today to check it out. Maybe it'll make sense once it's wrapped in glass, but right now it looks like something out of Dr. Seuss - hardly a straight line in the place.



No, I don't have a fish-eye lens, these columns are actually crooked.






These shots are in the back from 19th Street. I tried to include a bit of this square white building to give a point of reference for something straight.

I can't wait to see this finished.

That's just amazing. Those pictures give a new sense of beauty to ugliness. Definitely a site name worth saving for ironic pictures.

I like the "Report Unsafe Conditions" placard on the sidewalk fence. Looks like the whole building's unsafe... to your stomach!
