Broken: O' Neill building sign

81496596_d9fe60395c_1Jonathan Harford sends in this picture of the O' Neill building at the intersection of 6th Ave. and 22nd St. in New York City:

There is something about the O'Neill building that makes me feel a little queasy.

Why didn't they write it as ""?

Then again, maybe they're just happy to have people talk about it.

[It's not just any ill building, it's the one ill building! -mh]


FIRST! HAHA that's great.

I love the smell of carbon monoxide in the morning! Oh wait, CO is odorless.

I love the smell of asbestos is the morning!

Oh wait, that is odorless also.

Anyway, I'll probably be too ill to be able to smell anything in the morning.

Forget about how ill the building is.

The guy in the picture has a head almost the size of a bus window.

That can't be good for a person!!!

hmm... the one ill building perhaps?

(didn't know that buildings could get sick:-))

Sick Building Syndrome is very real. In the spirit of full disclosure, the real estate company is just letting you know in advance of the problem.

Makes me want to rename my website to something with a built-in double entendre.

It's in the expensive part of Chelsea (very close to where I used to work). My guess would be that places start at $3k/month.

There is something called Sick Building Syndrome, putatively caused by the current trend for hermetically sealed buildings and the outgassing of sundry paints, plastics, and glues.

Newly installed carpet can be particularly nasty.
