Gliding along the East River is becoming a tour
in Manhattan real estate development!
Some views remain the same,
but many now feature some sort of crane.
Or new a highrise underway in construction.
616 First Avenue is a new pair of luxury residential rentals
in the east 30’s.
They are reminiscient of the “Fred and Ginger” towers in Prague, a great example of deconstructivism.
Designed in part by Frank Gehry, the “Dancing House” is a clear inspiration to the 616 Towers, even incorporating the mid-level sky bridge.
Fred Astaire was one of the best dancers ever, but Ginger Rodgers did the same steps backwards and in heels!
