One57 apartments. Manhattan
Reading the NY Times this morning –I know, I am stupid but I am trying to overcome it reading, sorry but it doesn’t help- I find this new: Rising Tower Emerges as a Billionaires’ Haven (http://www.nytimes.com/2012/
One57 apartments. “The buyers of the nine full-floor apartments near the top that have sold so far — among them two duplexes under contract for more than $90 million each — are all billionaires, Gary Barnett, the president of the Extell Development Company, the building’s developer, said this week. The other seven apartments ranged in price from $45 million to $50 million.”
O.K. I need more than 50 millions of dollars but, of course, it won’t be a problem –I will ask my dad for it, at least he will smile for a while-. We were thinking about living in France but with this great idea –thanks again, NY Times!- I think I can convince Isabel at last. There’s a little problem… I don’t like heights but well… when I pay 50 millions I forget all my fears… No, wait a minute, there’s another more interesting problem. We live now in Madrid and I don’t like my neighbors but… How about a gang of billionaires? Oh, I’m very scared. Imagine I don’t realized that I am smoking a great, large –and very expensive of course- cigar and I go outside to look at people fighting to keep their lives on –remember I am rich, I can do this kind of things-. Might I do it? I don’t know but if there’s anyone in the building who hate cigars I would have a great problem to keep my legs. They are billionaires, not nuns!
And, like Groucho Marx would say, they won’t allow me to live in this kind of building even if I were a billionaire. I would be a very different person, I would be a banker or a petrol-oil company owner or… I’m really scared about it, I need to stop. When I’ll win the Nobel Prize –just 1 million dollars, what a crap!- I will need $49 million more. It’s a little begin, of course but I think I will preffer to live in any other building… You must know, my friends, even in Manhattan there are another buildings EVEN cheaper than this and EVEN poorer people than this. I promise it.
If you are looking for your next residence, you can take a look to the One57 site but, remember, you won’t enjoy my presence there!
Have a great and cheap day!
