Bloomberg Tower

I’ve liked 731 Lexington Avenue since it went up almost ten years ago. But until this week, all I’ve ever seen of the interior is the subterranean Home Depot on the Third Avenue side of the complex.

So this week I felt especially lucky to visit the building twice, getting to see both the space-age Bloomberg LP offices and Le Cirque Cafe. Unsurprisingly, the building is even nicer on the inside.

I get that this sign is aimed at the owners and not the dogs themselves, but still: why make the thing you’re trying to prohibit look so fun?

Even the dog who’s following the rules looks jealous-as-heck of the ones who aren’t.

Note: this happens in Taiwan, too.
