Architecture of Pyongyang; Madoff Denied Rental in NYC

NORTH KOREA—The architecture of North Korea's capital, Pyongyang, has previously been something of a mystery, with foreign journalists strictly watched and a ban on foreigners in the city's massive incomplete hotel complex. Now a new book, Philipp Meuser’s “Pyongyang: Architectural and Cultural Guide“, has arrived to shed some light on the subject. Architizer has posted some of the book's haunting photographs.

NEW YORK CITY— Bernie Madoff's son Andrew Madoff and his soon-to-be wife are having a little trouble finding a rental, owing to the fact that landlords want nothing to do with the schemer's offspring. Apparently the pair, whose children attend downtown schools, are hunting in Tribeca and Soho with a budget of $20,000 per month. [New York Post]
