Seismically retrofitted

perspective correction on the second?

I'm OK w the angles of the building, but the leaning tower bothers me... unfortunately to fix that means adjusting the whole image.


That's a good idea. This photo is a good candidate for correction since it's close to correct and there's room in the photo to lose some of the frame as the building is straightened.

Don't worry about the leaning tower of pizza (rumored to be the favorite food of City staffers during lunch meetings). The whole building was seismically retrofitted about 5 or 6 years ago. It was all placed on seismic base isolators so it moves free from the ground during violent ground movement. It's not going anywhere in a moderate earthquake that it won't spring back from.
