The exterior of the building — which we won’t show you, due to the security concerns discussed above — is ultra-modern. I like the look of it, but my colleague Staci Zaretsky was less enthusiastic: “Holy hell, the outside of Sotomayor’s new place looks like something out of a Tim Burton movie! Like very cartoony-looking, you know? It reminded of something from the awful Johnny Depp version of Willy Wonka.”
