Above, first among the best, is the American Standard building on Bryant Park. (I assume it's the company that makes urinals, that once caused a friend using one to remark "Moving up to the American Standard!")
Above left, veiled scaffolding on Broadway above Union Square. Above right, scaffolding for the rich & famous at the Plaza Condotel (condo/hotel) at Central Park South.
Above left is my co-winner for 2008, the brooding scaffold on 38th off 6th Ave. And just because the others here are black, white & elegant, above right is a Mad Max mess in pink from the Village.
