In the LA Times article, the developer mentions making Century City more pedestrian. This is a laughable idea. Century City was clearly de...

Whew! Whatever its difficulties, the buyers got an amazing work of architecture at an amazing price. The vacation rental option would be a big plus, as I know of many people who relished spending time there.

Agree emphatically with UN, Lever House and Rock Center. I'd also include the Guggenheim and the TWA Building at JFK! Both must sees and for TWA, it's completely worth going to JFK. That building is a masterpiece.
