Taki: "Ugly Things"

“On Park Avenue and 56th Street, Harry Macklowe is putting up one of the tallest buildings in New York City, as outrageous an act as sticking a McDonald’s next to St. Paul’s Cathedral. He got permission to do it from the Bloomberg administration, which is a bit like asking Ali Baba’s forty thieves permission to steal a camel. Well, ugly people build ugly things, and there are some very ugly buildings going up as I write.” Taki Theodoracopulos
