East Village home of the week

The real-estate section in the Post today includes this Seventh Street fixer-upper in its "houses of the week" section:


Some details!
Bedrooms: 3 Bathrooms: 2 Square feet: 1,450 Maintenance: $730 -- This penthouse co-op in a prewar townhouse really is an oasis, inside and out. Set on a tree-lined stretch of East Seventh Street, the "architect-designed" full-floor duplex features a cozy living room with a wood-burning fireplace. There are built-in speakers and stereo wiring, a washer/dryer, plus two "spectacular" terraces that total 900 square feet. Bonus: The upper terrace has a reflecting pool and fountains.

Oh, and the price? It's yours for...
$1.995 million.

PS
Dumb question. But. What in the world does anyone need a reflective pool on the "upper terrace" for...?

Don't you get it? The yunnies need to admire their own reflection, thus the reflecting pool.

Ah, of course!

Soon, I suppose, every new co-op/condo in the city will have reflecting pools...A mandatory feature!
