New York by Gehry (8 Spruce Street)

New York by Gehry (8 Spruce Street) (137)

In the Financial District, near the Brooklyn Bridge, stands this imposing skyscraper by Frank Gehry, the renowned architect known for the Guggenheim in Bilbao, the DG Bank in Berlin and the Dancing House in Prague, among other works, which are always winding.

Opened in 2011, this skyscraper that has redefined the most famous skyline in the world is known in various ways. Initially, at the beginning of its construction, it was called the Beekman Tower, but it soon became known as its address: 8 Spruce Street. Still, recently, all prefer to just call it the New York by Gehry in honour of its designer. 

The building has a reinforced concrete structure and was developed by Forest City Ratner and built by Kreisler Borg Florman, according to designs by architect Frank Gehry, of course. It fascinates with its beautiful and shiny stainless steel curves, which are typical of its designer and which many have quickly associated with Gotham City, where Batman battles to maintain order.

Its 265 metres and 76 floors include everything; from a school to a hospital. Of course, not forgetting the luxury and exclusivity, as most of the building is used for residential purposes. Yes, housing of just over 40 metres up to other options with 150 metres, which also boast a host of luxury services, such as a 24-hour concierge, shops, spa, heated pool, etc.

For an enviable photography of this skyscraper, we recommend you take it from Brooklyn Bridge Park, just across the Brooklyn Bridge. If you take it at sunset, it will be absolutely spectacular.
