New Yorkers love to brag about having the best-tasting drinking water in the country, although residents of high-rise buildings may not realize that their water makes an extra stop on its way from the reservoir. When high-rise residents turn on their taps to have a drink of water, take a shower or wash the dishes, the water comes from a tank located on the roof of the building. In addition to serving as a storage device, the tank creates water pressure through gravity which brings water to each apartment as needed.

I agree that NYC has GREAT water. Straight from the Catskills!

Beekman rocks. I wonder if this design will inspire Chinese and UAE area copies?

I'm back guys! Been a while, but here are some pictures I took today. Gorgeous weather, plus my birthday is on the 17th, so thought these would be a nice present for me and all of you!

Hi all,

I'm a real estate negotiator in Malaysia, please email me at [email protected] if you are interested to buy or sell any properties in Malaysia.

Besides that, you are also welcome to list other properties in Malaysia which for sell/rent. I'll do my best in helping you finding potential tenant/buyer. I am also good in helping expatriates to find a place for short/long-term staying.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any enquiries.

Thank you.
