The Acoustically Attenuated Tribeca Penthouse


“One of Manhattan’s most exquisite residences,” this Tribeca penthouse is so special that it gets its own website. And at 30 stories up with floor-to-ceiling windows, the views of the river and downtown’s skyscrapers are certainly breathtaking.

The apartment has all the lavish extras one would come to expect from a $17.955 million Manhattan penthouse, including: “acoustic attenuation features” to block outside noise, an integrated Crestron system with touch pad interfaces in each room to control shades, lighting, temperature, humidity and the home’s audio/visual system. Also, the entire master suite has heated floors to keep you warm on those cold December days. Does all that have you reaching for your checkbook? The penthouse has four bedrooms and is 4,700 square feet.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
