Here's my latest effort on behalf of Curbed. If you're wondering what you're looking at, it's a high-priced hotel straddling the High Line. I kid you not! Just look at this: Standard Hotel rendering
Here's my Curbed post:
High Line Construction Chronicles: Standard Anything But

Clever, but not so pretty.
I hope they don't keep the name upside down like in the rendering.
Fudgepacking district, if you ask me.
That's an accident waiting to happen.
Is this the Space Shuttle launch pad?
It looks interesting in its non-completed form....
but when finally clad in all its curtain-wall "glory"
it resembles an early 1960s retro building
more suited for the headquarters
of the Standard Oil Company....those old "ESSO" b's !
Fudgepacking....meat market.....one in the same.
How do you know so much?
I like the way
she straddles the tracks.....
Watch that first step, it's a doozy.
