Interesting use of those horizontal ceramic rods

That part of me that hated the architecture of the new New York Times Building since I first saw it piercing the skyline kinda enjoys the fact that it’s become this target for climbers (three so far!). Yes, it’s illegal and dangerous and not really as majestic, say, as what Philippe Petit did at the World Trade Center. But it adds a quirky bit of history to a facade than reminds me of an especially hideous 1970s jail.
