Interesting Wall street journal article:

Quote:
..

Mr. Barnett, in particular, has been a beneficiary of the trend. His under-construction, 1,004-foot tower, One57, is slated to open later this year. Activity has been brisk—more than 70% is sold—and two condos are in contract to sell for more than $90 million each, including one to a group led by investor William Ackman, people familiar with the sales say. Total listing prices for the 92 units top $2 billion, and even 50-square-foot storage spaces go for as much as $200,000.

Which one? The tall building closest in the picture? Those 2 buildings are part of the Mt Sinai hospital complex located around 99th/ 100th street between fifth and Madison Ave.

Well maybe if you didn't add a picture of Manhattan Island from the air with thousands of buildings, folk might know what you're actually talking about and you wouldn't need to come back at them with your bad attitude when they assume you're referring to the picture you added with the question.

Come back when you're sober.
You've got to remember that this is an international forum and that some members don't speak English as a primary language like we do. He already said that you merely misinterpreted his post. Following that up, he apologized and said he'd leave it at that.

I stick up for L.A.F.2. He's got a point. People have to bend the meaning into shape if they really want to comprehend the intended thought.
