For example, a real estate agent was showing a 30th floor apartment at 101 West End Avenue, only for the potential client to pull out a gun. The Post reports that the man told the agent to leave, and she then called the police, who found out his gun was a fake. The man was taken to Bellevue. The site at 101 West End Avenue used to have a NY Times printing plant; currently there are rentals and coprorate apartments available.
