Dilapidated observatory looks like the Planet Express building

reddit user yearh made this gif from a photograph by Al Richardson (head over to Flickr to the image in its full-resolution glory).

Dilapidated observatory looks like the Planet Express building

Cointe Observatory housed the university's Institute of Astrophysics and Geophysics until 2002, and, according to Wikipedia, was occupied by Société Astronomique de Liège as of 2008. There have been plans to renovate the building, but no word on whether those plans involve transporting it to a future version of New (New) York.

Not sure if old observatory or...........Planet Express HQ???? [reddit]
