Against the Clouds - New York by Gehry and the New York City Skyline- By Vivienne Gucwa New York by Gehry is a newer skyscraper designed by architect Frank Gehry that is situated at 8 Spruce Street. As one of my favorite new additions to the New York City skyline, I think it looks especially impressive against the other buildings that make up the iconic lower Manhattan skyline. It’s especially fascinating in juxtaposition with the Woolworth Building which sits beside it since the Woolworth Building is one of New York City’s oldest skyscrapers. In this particular photo, the Woolworth Building is the skyscraper with the green roof to the left of New York by Gehry. It is now the tallest building featuring residential space in the entire Western Hemisphere. At 76 stories it’s striking due to the rippling panels that run down the surface of the building.
