You gave me a good laugh NYgirl.

EtherealMist, I used to ride the T to Backbay for work, and I really like that neighborhood. The flats in that area have got style.

I kinda see it this way...

Ny is the doll all dressed up in her backless white gown and tierra...

Dubai is the skank in the Pink bebe shirt and green Booty shorts.

Actually apart from anything from Emaar (partly gov owned) or Nakheel (can't remember if partly or fully owned by gov), so most of the supertall towers, are by smaller developers who have to find their own way of financing their towers. If they don't sell enough units they can't build it, so some have been very slow to get off the ground.
