Two NYC Landmarks Change Hands

The two New York buildings that adorn more tourist schlock than any others—the Flatiron building and the Chrysler building—are being bought by tourists, albeit extremely deep-pocketed ones. Italian mogul Valter Mainetti's Sorgente Group is acquiring a majority stake in the Flatiron, while the Abu Dhabi Investment Council is poised to take a 75% stake in the Chrysler for approximately $800 million. Didn't get in your bid in time? Guess you'll have to settle for the statue and 3-D puzzle.
