Quasi-Neo-Classicism in New York

This building has neo-classical elements paired with the chunkiness of baroque forms and the harsh shapes and angles of elements that are american-art-deco-turned-social-realism. It is definitely one of the ugliest buildings I have seen. It's so ecclectic that it doesn't go with itself. There are cool bear faces on the side, but I didn't get a good picture of them, so I'll have to go back.

Financial District, Manhattan, New York City
