“It is small-minded to focus on the university buying a $200,000 table”

200k-conference-table

Right? Especially when you consider that this custom-made (in China), circular conference table seats 23 and features “data ports, microphones and an illuminated map of the world in a glass panel at its center.” It’s the centerpiece of the newly needed “world-class corporate meeting space” at the school. So what university would make such an extravagant purchase? Columbia? Yale? NYU? Nope. The school in question is none other than Kean University, a co-ed public school located in Northern New Jersey whose four year tuition totals something like $44,000. It’s destined to become a breeding ground for UN delegates, or at least James Bond villains.

$195 Million

The price of a 756 sq. ft. Mausoleum Site at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. While that’s definitely on the extreme end, there’s definitely a “Cemetery Bubble” happening across the globe. Wonder how much it costs to get buried inside the booty club?
