    Thats weird, cool, and (due to the 9/11 connection) sick all at the same time.

    I'm thinking the connection is some else seeing a connection that has no connection to what the designers were thinking.

    Seriously, it's a free world career killer.

    however

    That's the coolest damn set of buildings I would never to in, b/c I'd be to afraid one of the offices that are sticking out would fall.

    seriously, imagine trying to hire people to work on one of those rooms.

    I dunno... sometimes things are what they appear. I think that clearly was intended to evoke the image of the towers.

    on the other hand, there's something kind of weirdly cool about them.

    as for the bridge apartments, at Atlantis in the Bahams, they have a bridge suite which, back about 8 years ago when i was there, was about $25,000 a night. (no, i didn't stay in those rooms, denis rodman was in them when we were at the hotel).
