New Yorker on Re-Use and Recycle

The real estate crisis in most of America has not hit New York yet, so they can still make fun of all-glass buildings and overpriced condos. But how does a New York agent sell a reno of a brownfield project? Andy Borowitz writes:

BRING YOUR ARCHITECT and tell your architect to bring his contractor, plumber, demolition team, and hazmat squad to help carve your dream home from this former Superfund site, listed in the National Register of Condemned Properties. Sequestered in the up-and-coming neighborhood of NoHaSoCa (North of Harlem South of Canada), this almost habitable charmer-in-waiting just needs a little TLC and the removal/disposal of several tons of toxic waste. Perfect for growing family or growing an additional limb. $4.825M." More in ::New Yorker via ::Archinect
