New York Fucking City. Goddamnit.
I warn you in advance, everything that follows is merely the work of Envy, so it may not be appropriate for all audiences.
A rich fucking woman bought a prestigious New York City property recently, an apartment in the unifinished One57 tower on 57th St. between Sixth and Seventh Aves. For her piece of shit toddler. From the Telegraph:
“We were running around the city looking at things and I finally said: ‘Well why are you buying?’” Mr [Kevin] Brown said to CCTV, the Chinese state broadcaster. [Brown is senior vice president at Sotheby's International.]
“And she said, well, her daughter was going to go to Columbia, or NYU or maybe Harvard and so she needed to be in the centre of the city and that was why she was picking this one particular apartment. So I said: ‘Oh, how old is your daughter?’ and she said: ‘Well she’s two’. And I was just shocked.”
The building was designed by a Pritzker prize-winning architect.
Mr Brown said Chinese buyers now make up a quarter of his business, in dollar terms.
“What is more interesting is that two years ago, it was only 15 per cent. And before that it was five per cent,” he said. “Most Chinese want to be by Central Park, but they are not interested in the park view. They want a southern exposure.”
Southern exposure my fucking ass. Shitbag.
