From the Empire State Building to St. John’s Cathedral and Grand Central Station, New York City is among the best with its distinguished works of architecture.  Now, with the ground being broken on the new Bank of America Tower in Midtown Manhattan, that tradition is being continued.  The 925 foot crystalline skyscraper is being billed as the most environmentally responsible high rise office building ever, and it is constructed almost entirely of recycled and recyclable materials.  It features a planted roof to stem urban heat island effects, saves millions of gallons of water annually by capturing rain and reusing  wastewater, and even has its own co-generation power plant.  A big happening in the Big Apple!
