The Statue of Liberty

Sometimes it seems like virtually every building imaginable, no matter how historic, is being converted into luxury condos. But what if the Statue of Liberty was an ultra high-end housing conversion?

As a condominium complex, “the landmark offers privacy, security, exclusivity and the feeling that you are part of history. One lucky penthouse owner will be able to experience breathtaking 360° views of the city (and New Jersey) from their torch-style terrace,” NYAnimal writes.

And the poignant satire doesn’t stop there.

“The base of the statue will feature parking, assorted high-end retail stores, a five star restaurant and maids’ quarters… There will be limited affordable housing and an elegant poor door for entry, so low-income residents never have to see the rich people and get jealous. Applicants will just have to pass the totally reasonable credit check,” NYAnimal adds.
