Skyline

Central Park, New York

Excuse the obscenity, but it’s hard to think of these obscene new erections as anything but pencil-dick buildings, leveraging hideous loopholes in NY real estate law to enrich developers and allow Russian and other kleptocratic regimes’ oligarchs to hide and protect their ill-gotten wealth in empty pieds à terre, through layers of shell corporations, whilst blighting Central Park’s skyline.
