Anybody who read Clive Thompson’s excellent and fair-minded piece on Google in China in the NYT magazine this weekend will have flicked past yet another piece of real-estate porn to get there: a double-page spread from Zeckendorf Development, LLC advertising 15 Central Park West. “Residences from $3,000,000″ it says in large yet tasteful white-on-brown.
Lower down, in much smaller type, we find this:
We are pledged to the letter and the spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the Nation.
Seriously, that’s what it says. And no, they still won’t sell you an apartment for less than $3 million.
