The Right Height

Miss Heather thinks the new Karl Fischer building on Bedford and South 4th is too tall – in fact its (probably) about right – but its a lot taller than Heather thinks. While the rendering leads one to believe this is a 3 or 4 story building, its actually 5 or 6 very tall stories. Given the context – with a 6-story tenement on one side and 7-story loft on the other – that height is probably about right.

In this case, its not the building that’s too tall, its the context that is too short.
