Well, if there's any consolation to this, is that Dubai spent billions building all of these supertall residential towers, which were the tallest in the world and of eloquent design.

New York builds one crappy box and it takes the title right out of their hands. Difference? Dubai is trying to make up for its depletion of oil reserves by switching their income over to tourist trapping. New York is funded by the state, and wealthy families who have their names written in its bones. Don't get me wrong, tourism has done wonders for Singapore, so I expect the same for Dubai. However, I highly doubt that many millionaires would want to take up residence there (unless the condo is to be used as a weekend getaway).

Who am I kidding. Mile-high skyscrapers and different tiers of traffic are sure to follow.
