All these stalled construction projects around town are such a downer, but an international design firm has come up with a cool way to turn the down around, by putting up big fake iceberg facades around the sites... which is somehow less depressing than moribund development? Crain's New York reports that "the angular bright-white structures—which resemble the one that did in the HMS Titanic—are designed for quick and easy assembly and disassembly, once the real estate market revives." Of course, by the time that happens it will be impossible to distinguish between the fake icebergs and the real ones, as hell will have frozen over.
