Lollipop, Lollipop

Whether or not it was Landmark worthy, I sure do miss the old 2 Columbus Circle. In photos at least, its replacement is nothing to get excited about, and its reuse of the lollipop structure leaves me scratching my head. The old building had a dignity that I find lacking here – it would have been better to just tear it down (there are, as a friend of mine likes to say, worse things you can do to a building than to tear it down).
