Thanks to James.

So which building is that "New York's WORST building" building?

You know, I'm not sure, but I want to find out.

You can see two slideshows of "worst buildings" in NYC lists here, one submitted by public radio listeners, one from an architecture critic.

Faster loading slideshow here on the Daily Dose of Architecture, but it's the whole Flickr set, not just the winners.

Found it.

Here's the answer.

The "V" is a corporate logo.

Here's a good picture of it.

I would pick about 100 worst buildings before I'd name this one.

I'm not convinced it's that Verizon building -- the one in lego is a big slab, and this is a great old Art Deco building.

I think he means this Verizon building.

You're right! Thanks. That poster is half-right - it's a Verizon building, but not the Verizon Building in lower Manhattan.
