[A to-scale rendering of the planned Burj Dubai skyscraper (to be built in the United Arab Emirates) if it were plopped down in a pre-9/11 lower Manhattan. The building will be some 160 stories high, towering nearly a half a mile above the sand and the oil and the poem islands. It will be a full Chrysler building taller than the current record holder in Taipei. NYT via Media Assassin. Click through (please) for larger image.]
