What bothers me is that many of the best looking buildings in SF are blocked in by boxy 60's/70's buildings. With the exception of a few buildings it looks like a very boxy skyline from most angles.
I didn't take it as a personal attack either and certainly agree with you that we have some fugly boxes downtown. It's the sheer density along with the nice buildings that makes the whole so interesting to me. Come back out and see how the latest batch of "shorter" buildings has contributed to the scene.
