Newtown Crap Tower

"Meet the Newtown Tower (25-25 Newtown Avenue) located only a few blocks from the Crescent Tower. This ten story monstrosity is surrounded by one and two story houses. While there are some six story apartment buildings accross the street, they are well designed and do not seem out of place since they are not slim towers such as this.
This garbage faces an open road (T inter- section), which allows developers to add extra height, in this case three more floors. Yet another scam which does not take the height of the surrounding structures into consideration."

Visually (this 10 story monster) appears to be "giving the finger" to its neighbors !

Looks fine to me, it's not offensive like some 3-4 story new buildings are.

This building must have a great view because it blocks my view of the Chrysler building and the Empire State Building. It is the only thing sticking up out of the landscape and it steals my view of the two most recognizable buildings in the skyline. I hate you, ugly puke colored tower.

This apartment rocks. This place have the best view of the manhattan skyline and the owners/super are really nice and efficient.
Grow up! Stop being such a hater. Change is happening all around if you look at all the "developments" in Astoria/Long Island City. You probably live in a crappy basement somewhere...

I actually kind of like it. If you can afford the price, which most can't, it gives the residents of Queens the chance to see the whole entire New York skyline, Triboro & 59th bridge and the Citibank building (i'm assumming of course-I can't afford to live there)...does seem a bit out of place though...
