Agreed. This is a beautiful skyscraper, largely due to its simplicity, but imposing size. It's certainly one of my favourites.

'Bride of Wildenstein' narrowly avoids eviction from Trump building
after falling $73,500 behind with her rent






By David Mccormack
10 January 2013

Quote:
New York socialite Jocelyn Wildenstein, who famously spent $4 million on plastic surgeries to make herself look more like a cat, has narrowly avoided being evicted from her Manhattan apartment after falling behind with her rent payments. The 72-year-old, who earned the nicknames 'Catwoman' and ‘Bride of Wildenstein’ due to her extensive surgical procedures, was set to be kicked out of her 57th floor apartment at the Trump World Tower, which overlooks the United Nations Headquarters in Manhattan. Her landlord had started eviction proceedings, after accusing her of failing to pay the $18,000-plus monthly rent since October. Both parties were scheduled to appear in Housing Court next month, but just in time Wildenstein had paid up the full back rent of $73,500, reports the New York Post.

Jocelyn based her face remodeling on exotic wild cats which she adored. She apparently thought that her ex-husband might find her more attractive if she became 'more feline'. An ugly divorce followed after she walked in on her husband with a 19-year-old Russian model and he pulled a gun on her. Jocelyn, who is known for her lavish lifestyle, received a $2.5 billion settlement, plus $100 million each year for 13 years after that.

This building does not need to struggle to look attractive...
But that there's the result of trying too hard. ^^

Like the building, hate the man.

Should rename it the "Excuse Me! Excuse Me!" Tower, or maybe Toupee Tower.

Not sure of the exact math height 2 with ratio but I think it was close. Carnegie Hall Tower may be slimmer then TWT.

I love this building. Why do others hate it so much? Reminds me of Space Odyssey 2001.

Most people hate this building because, Example A, Don Trump & Example B, "Its a boring box" so 2 say. Now I can understand the 1st reason ( I don't hate or love the man) the second I say not every building can b ESB or 30 Rock.

This building epitomizes everything that is wrong with architecture in New York City, a tall, featureless box devoid of character or soul, sort of like the person the building is named after, it is truly NY's singular answer to the WTC.

The weird thing is, I actually like this building.

I almost feel like I need to apologize for liking this building though.
