Actually, I like the new Cooper Union Building, just around the corner from McSorley's Ale House, New York's oldest drinking establishment, which because of this building, is overrun with college fratboys. Still, I like it. Though while I was taking this shot, a guy behind me tried to unzip my backpack and remove a lens. I like this building, though it has demolished whatever classic character was left of this East Village crossroads (Bowery, 7th Street, 3rd and 4th Avenues). But I do like this building. Call me cracked!
