Upper West Side horror.

This afternoon I took my daughter to a friend's place for a sleepover. On my way back to the subway, I spotted this nearly completed building at Broadway between 100th and 101st Streets.

I can only surmise that this monstrosity is the result of a "bad architecture" contest, something like those Bulwer-Lytton contests for writers. If I were a real estate broker trying to sell condos in this thing, the best selling point I could think of is that if you live in it, you're assured of not having a view of it from your window.
