I never heard of 432 Park Avenue until I googled it. Don't mean to be unkind, but wow, that's one ugly building.

Average cost of an apartment in 432 is $21 million.

Yeah it's famously ugly. People consider it a giant middle finger to the rest of the city. The best reason to buy an apartment there is that it's the only place with a skyline that doesn't include 432 park

Yes, but what it lacks in exterior beauty, it more than makes up for with its cold, hard, impersonal, overpriced, boxy interior spaces. I've been in more comfortable igloos.

Incredibly, 432 Park Avenue is now only the 6th tallest building in New York.

Pretty ugly building. Probably a nice place to live. In terms of ugliness though doesn't hold a candle to some others I've seen. Like the Prague TV Tower, which, following the demolition of the Morris A. Mechanic theater in Baltimore I think by default has the title of ugliest building in the world.

I had to look that one up, too. I don't think that one would be so bad if they would call a tower surgeon to remove all those tumors on the poor thing.

I did so badly on this quiz, it is a wonder I didn't get points taken away from me instead of a 0/5. I lived and worked in NY for a while but it was years ago (that's my excuse anyway).

I had everything I was going to get (i.e. no Friends characters) except 432 Park. All I could remember was 4XX Park, so I started randomly guessing...

Some extra spellings would be helpful, especially for us foreigners. Statton, Statten, Staton. Rachael.

Surprising to see De Blasio have less of a % than Giuliani and Bloomberg. Maybe that's just because I'm younger, but you'd think recency bias would play a part

It's not just recency but also the media appearance or work in general.

Never saw a single episode and I was a 20-something when it was popular, so I should have been the target demographic. The clips I have seen appear to justify the time I never wasted on it.

Kathy Hochul is the current governor of New York. If DeBlasio (the current mayor) is on here it only makes sense for her to be included.
