Then again, PINK may be too wimpy a word for this building.
I don’t know any of the residents, but I’d bet that the men who live there are secure enough to eat quiche.
I wonder how the developer marketed the condo units…. SEE THE CITY THROUGH ROSE COLORED GLASSES! WANT TO FEEL IN THE PINK?
PINK FLOYD FANS, WELCOME HOME!
One strong selling point of the building was its unobstructed view of the city skyline. Reports of pending construction of another condo building in front of it– which would block the uptown view for most of the pink condo building residents–has made them see red.
Perhaps the developer never promised them a rose garden.
My only personal knowledge of the building is that it has (or had) a very kind building superintendent. Once I was in our veterinarian’s waiting room with a woman who said her cat had fallen off a balcony at the pink building. She had gone out of town and left her pet in someone else’s care there. The “sitter” put the cat on the balcony and it fell–seven stories. The building superintendent happened upon the badly injured cat next to the building that night and without knowing who it belonged to, took it to the emergency animal clinic. The woman returned to find her cat missing. She had just learned of its whereabouts and had rushed to the clinic and was waiting to talk to the vet about whether or not the cat had internal injuries.
When I went over to take some evening pictures of the building this evening, a woman was outside walking a three-legged dog. I didn’t ask any questions!
At night, however, the building is transformed. When residents turn on their lights, the pink disappears and the glass looks clear to those on the outside. In the interest of modesty, I hope the residents realize that.
Let Pink Floyd sing about the dark side of the moon. We don’t need to see it!
