The 50-story apartment building is a coda to the Gwathmey-Siegel legacy, one Robert has had to maintain alone. Charles, 71, succumbed to esophageal cancer while the tower was still under construction. @damonwinter photographed 70 Columbus while on #nytassignment in #JerseyCity." By nytimes on Instagram.
