I think it’s the best mirror-wall in the city. I’ve written enthusiastically before about the Trump Tower. Now I see another aesthetic reason to like the building.
I fear, though, that its mirror-cladding poses a new threat to birds. Our newest glass skyscrapers are so mirage-like that many birds probably die flying into them. If this is something you know about, will you let me know?
