Sixty-three floors up, the view is stunning. Below, Central Park’s lawns, bike lanes, kids boating in the lake. To my right, apartments and shops lining a canal. In the distance, the ocean, planes approaching, and a sweeping highway bridge. I’m not in New York, or Venice, or even in Las Vegas. I’m in South Korea. And a few years ago, none of this was here!
