According to the zoning law, the design of this monster was supposed to be complementary to the
landmarked Fraunces Tavern block on the other side of Pearl Street, which provided the air rights
necessary to make it as large as it is. But something was obviously lost in the translation. There is a
very small nod to history inside, in a pair of glassed-in displays of seventeenth-century artifacts
uncovered during the excavation of its foundations.
