He was immediately accosted by a security guard in a brown uniform who told him he was not allowed to film the building.
Jacob K. Javits Federal Office Building
architect - Alfred Easton Poor, Kahn & Jacobs, Eggers & Higgins
location - 26 Federal Plaza.
date - 1967
style - International Style II
construction - 179,0m / 588.8ft, 41 floors, glass concrete
This massive building has a 41-storey glass-walled slab facing east that is partly "wrapped" around a core that faces Broadway. Originally the facade facing Broadway was a windowless wall of exposed concrete, but in 1976 an extension by the same architects brought offices also to the western portion. The vertical window slits of the glass walls are misaligned so that all the adjacent windows are at a different height, forming an alternating zig-zag pattern on the facade.
On the triangular plaza in front of the building is the eight-storey Customs Courthouse as a black glass cube that is elevated on two white vertical "plates" that slice through the cube.
type - Federal Office Building Government
Thank goodness there are people out there who are willing to put their own well being at risk for the sake of challenging injustices perpetrated by the PTB and elite.

Such a thing has happened before actually. Sometimes when the authorities get out of control photographers protest by assembling as many as they can get and then they all go out to photograph the trouble spot. That would actually be quite a good idea in this case too.
