Paul Goldberger no like Charles Gwathmey's new Astor Place tower: "If, as Vincent Scully proposed, architecture is a conversation between generations, this young intruder hasn't much to say to its neighbors. Its shape is fussy, and the glass façade is garishly reflective: Mies van der Rohe as filtered through Donald Trump. Instead of adding a lyrical counterpoint to Astor Place, the tower disrupts the neighborhood's rhythm." The apartments themselves sound nice, which apartments starting at $2 million really should.

State representative Pricey Harrison has a bunch of new info on her blog. Greensboro's newest member of the state legislature has enlisted Jay Ovittore to maintain the site; she writes, he handles the actual posting.

Free advice: Put some more info at the top of the page as part of the title banner, eg, State Rep for Greensboro or somesuch.
