Most bookworms would agree that the best way to honor an author is not to raze his or her childhood home and replace it with a giant building, but rather to preserve said home.

Unfortunately, the developers of New York City’s Parker West didn’t consult with fans of Dorothy Parker.

Curbed reports quite sarcastically on the ways in which its designers and owner say the building pays homage to the noted poet and short-story writer and adds its own commentary on the actual irony of it all.
