    The units that cantilever feature picture windows set in the floor.

    Better not be scared of heights
  2. The $33 million apartment wasn't even the good one. The good one has a see-through pool bottom hanging out into space, hundreds of feet above street level.

    Good thing preachers in Nebraska will be asked to bail out these folks.

    That has got to be the ugliest building in the world. Auschwitz is prettier.
  4. Wow, you call that ugly? I kind of like it. I've been to Dachau and it sure as hell wasn't prettier.
  5. Barron's reported on last week's art sale:

    "Sotheby's held a record-shattering, single-artist auction of 223 works done in the past two years by London's Damien Hirst.

    The auction, titled Beautiful Inside My Head Forever, brought $200.7 million, well above the auction house's high estimate of $177.6 million."

    Hirst is famous for showing dead animals encased in plastic. Paulson will put more money into the coffers of these art buyers in NY. "It's for your own good."
