Donald Trump versus Frank Gehry

In a peculiar case of "my building is bigger than yours" syndrome, the Donald went after star architect Frank Gehry's Beekman Tower after it was announced that the 76-story residential tower's size would trump Trump's World Tower by one foot, making it the largest residential building in New York. They exchanged barbed words in November 2010 over the project with Trump saying, "I like the developer, but it's always very tough to make something successful at the high-end level with a public school in the building." Gehry said that Trump was just holding a grudge ever since he turned down working on one of his projects, adding, "I don't like his hairdo anyway." Touché, Frank. Touché.
