The Bank Of America Tower at 6th Avenue and 42nd Street is coming along nicely since I first mentioned it last August. When completed, it will be the second tallest building in NYC, due to its spire, but will have only 55 floors. Being constructed with tax-free Liberty Bonds, intended to rebuild lower Manhattan after 9/11, the BOA Tower is ...

Governator: The Veto Vill Be Bahck

I’m hoping this news won’t dissuade anybody from attending tonight’s marches and rallies, but the Governator has announced that he will once again veto California’s marriage equality legislation. Yesterday, Schwarzenegger said that he would only approve gay marriage if voters overturned 2000’s Proposition 22, which banned same-sex marriage, but which courts have said only applied to those married out-of-state.

Self-Hate Crimes

A year ago, I wrote about the murder of gay New Yorker Michael Sandy, who died after being struck by a car as he ran from four gay-bashers who had lured him to a Brooklyn park by picking him up on a gay chat site. After Sandy died from his injuries, police upgraded the charges to second-degree murder with hate ...

Morning View – Lincoln Building

Across 42nd Street from Grand Central Terminal, the 55-story neo-Gothic Lincoln Building was completed in 1930. A contemporary of the Empire State and the Chrysler, the Lincoln is often overlooked due to its prettier, flashier neighbors, but is quite striking nonetheless. It’s hard to get a good shot of the Lincoln from the ground, as is frustratingly the case with ...
