Cool stuff. Some standouts to me

 

#7 The Porthouse. VERY rarely do I find architecture to be "bad", but that is atrocious looking. 

 

#8 Perfect. 

 

#17-  the driving range water plant is amazing! Great use of land. 

 

#14 - The Oculus is going to be a landmark for a very long time. Stunning building. 

 

#2 Best building of the year from what I've seen. Absolutely love it, provides an amazing transition from waterfront to skyline without blending in.

I saw the Oculus and Via W. 57th (#2) still under construction on my trip to NYC last summer (2015). Both are breathtaking. The sheer scale of the Oculus is amazing, even with it being surrounded by huge buildings. It towers over the street when you emerge from the Cortland Street station on the east side of it. It's just another great piece in the very well done reconstruction of the WTC complex.

I love the Pennovation Center (#23). A perfect mix of retro and modern style. The reading room at the NY Public Library is also very impressive. I wandered in there when I had time to kill on my first trip to NYC years ago and I was sorry I didn't have more time to explore.

I'm not a fan of abstract architecture.
