I follow a lady on twitter who is forever complaining about how the billionaire towers are ruining the view from Central Park. The irony is that her family designed many buildings in the area, and some people accuse those of ruining the areas they're in.

If everything could be tudor and deco and beaux arts it would be an amazingly beautiful sight from Central Park, but alas, the world is more chaotic than that.

^Yeah, her great grandfather designed many beautiful apartment buildings in the 20s and 30s, and his descendants went on to design many office buildings after WW2. Some of those office buildings were accused of many of the same sins she lays at the feet of the "billionaire towers".
