[VIDEO] The Wild Story of New York’s Abandoned Skyscraper

THERE'S a big problem in The Big Apple. You’ve heard of Italy’s Leaning Tower of Pisa and you can’t forget San Francisco’s tilting Millennium Tower. But did you know that New York City also has its very own slanted skyscraper? That’s right, the skyline that never stops evolving has developed a bit of a predicament. It's all happening over at One Seaport or 161 Maiden Lane: 60 storeys of prime real estate on Manhattan’s eastern waterfront. At first glance it may look like any other construction project downtown. But look a lot closer, and you’ll find it’s actually leaning 8 centimetres, or three inches, to the north.
