Hidden in an article about New York City's first million-
dollar parking space is the somewhat incredible fact
that, up in the apartment building this parking space
 will be attached to, "the shower water will be pumped
 full of vitamin C and aloe" for the building's
economically distinguished residents.

At either end of the long buildings were to be situated
 control booths, where technicians would command
 instruments to regulate the temperature, humidity,
and air pressure, as well as to waft salubrious scents
 and "rarefied condensed air" through the halls. Nor g
 "according to scientific facts" would transmit from the
 control center a range of sounds gauged to intensify
the process of slumber. The rustle of leaves, the
cooing of nightingales, or the soft murmur of waves
would instantly relax the most overwrought veteran of
 the metropolis. Should these fail, the mechanized
beds would then begin gently to rock until
consciousness was lost.
