Oddly enough, I like seeing buildings under construction (nude, with no clothes on!) rather than when they're completed (fully dressed!).

Sometimes, when they put their "clothes on" they're less attractive than when they were "nude"!

Everytime I'm down Laughlin NV way I get to see the shell of a 30 story hotel, which halted construction 20+ years ago, sitting there with no clothes on and it certainly looks better than some of its "dressed" neighbors!

My god, One New York Plaza was that dirty even back then? What horrible material did they use for that thing? I know New York was still quite sooty back then but damn, that much soot in 4 years?
