Daily MailA Chinese mother has bought a $6.5 million (£4.3 million) flat in Manhattan for her toddler.  The woman told the New York based real estate agency that she wants the flat for when her daughter leaves home for college.  Kevin Brown, a senior vice president at Sotheby’s International who specialises in selling the city’s prestigious property, said the unnamed woman had snapped up the flat, CCTV reported. ’We were running around the city looking at things and I finally said: ‘Well why are you buying?” Mr Brown said to the Chinese state broadcaster.  ’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 apartment is in the One57 tower, a 90-floor glass skyscraper overlooking Central Park. Situated on 157 West 57th street the tower will become the tallest residential building in the city when it is finished next year.

How pissed would you be if you were homeless on the streets and you pick up the paper and you see some Chinese bitch is buying a 6 million dollar apartment and shes just gonna let it sit there for the next 15 years? I’d probably just shoot myself in my homeless face. I’m gonna track down this rich idiot and ask her to sublet. I’ll pay her 1500 bucks a month for that shit. Better than nothing. She can turn me into some sort of Chinese slave if she wants. Turn the tables – I’ll sell bootleg DVDs and fake hand bags for her. Just let me live in your daughter’s million dollar dorm room while she’s still shitting in her diapers.
