Slide show ending in A Building

Back in March 2011, we first noted the condo in the A Building with a slide. Yes — this slide.

Phil Galfond, a professional poker player, owned this place and put it on the market.

According to the Post:

The new owner of the two pads atop the East 13th Street building, identified by sources as Daniel Gieschen, a Canadian who made a bundle selling a software company, paid $3.3 million for the ultra-modern residence.

“He plans on inviting all his friends to America for a slide party, and then he wants to donate the slide to a children’s museum or to a charity,” said listing broker Elizabeth Kee of Core.

In times like these, there's only one thing to do: SLIDE PARTY!

It's nice that he's going to give the slide to kids. We need more adults who act like... adults.

I don't know, a little less cynicism and a little more optimism is good for the soul.

And that's why I watch My Neighbor Totoro every couple of months.

I bet liability is going to get in the way of that good intention.

Well the slide is already there, so enjoy it(laundry chute, perhaps?) The slide is built to complement specific architecture so it won't be easy to simply remove and re-use. Probably just wants to get rid of it without sounding like he doesn't like the idea of a luxury slide.

Too bad they didn't run the slide outside the building and then curve back inside
