Construction is booming all over the city, and that's especially true when it comes to high-priced Manhattan housing. Towers are going up all over--and archtects are getting pretty bold. A pyramid is going up on the Hudson, for example, while across town on the East River, these two towers will have a mid-air swimming pool suspended between them. Yes, you read that correctly. Between.
