The American Institute of Architects recently published a new edition of its “Guide to New York City.”Every year in the guide, the institute ranks New York’s 10 worst architectural eyesores.

From Design Taxi:

The institute’s annual list of the top 10 architectural blemishes include, this time round, anything from apartments to hotels to restaurants. Donald Trump had a ‘strong’ showing this year, with his Trump Place and Trump Tower taking fifth and fourth place respectively.

But the No. 1 ugliest building in New York? That would be The New York Times midtown headquarters!
