Still, nice pic.

Find this in gaoloumi.com, Pudong about 25 years ago.
Imagine what if one had bought a small piece of land, say the size of a small parking lot, in Pudong 25 years ago.

Move your asses away is for sure, but one probably could get a apartment outside the city worth a little bit more than 100USD.

NY sucks, the worst 'global city' I have ever lived in. It only looks good from helicopters, the metro system is a nightmare....
