Off topic, but this has been bugging me: Two years ago I got annoyed with the nonsensical slogan of a nearby condo development. That building was built, and its overpriced apartments are selling like hotcakes even though they represent an impossible state in the space-time continuum ("Traditional Living Like Never Before").
Apparently the same copywriter found another job with the marketing staff of an even more luxurious building. I passed this frightening sign last week:
"21st Century Pre-War Residences"
Does the developer know something the rest of us do not? Should I be constructing a concrete bunker in my bedroom and stocking up on canned food? Will the Statue of Liberty topple before all the apartments are sold? Yikes.
(Note for those unfamiliar with Manhattan real-estate lingo: in sensible sentences, "pre-war" refers to apartments built before 1945.)
