The red-brick rowhouse down below and the concrete cube up above really are part of one and the same apartment building. Curbed.com writer Jeremiah Budin nominated this Clinton Hill curiosity with its mismatched top and bottom for our Ugliest Buildings contest.

“Somebody call Will Smith, there’s an alien spaceship hovering over Clinton Hill,” commenter Boredom Hill wrote.
