New York City Is About To Have The World’s Longest Building

The New York City skyline is filled with massive skyscrapers. For as far as you can see, these beautiful glass covered buildings dominate the view, and for a time New York had boasted one of the world’s tallest buildings in the Empire State Building (which is currently number 28 on that list).

With massive buildings going up all across the globe, it’s nearly impossible to hold onto the title of world’s tallest building anymore. But New York has decided that it doesn’t really care because they are planning on building the world’s longest building in the coming years. The building is still waiting for its final approval from the city, but when it’s up, it will be a marvel of architecture.

Designed by architecture firm Oiio Studios, the “Big Bend” as it has been named will change the New York City skyline forever.

Last Wednesday, Toni Well’s neighbors called the police after they heard Toni screaming, “Help me, he’s going to kill me,” while she was arguing with her husband, 29-year-old Barry Wells. Neighbors witnessed a police car roll up on the scene, but neither of the officers exited the vehicle in order to check on the situation.

The police received a second phone call from Toni’s neighbors after they heard her young daughter incessantly crying next door. When cops arrived on the scene they found Toni dead at the bottom of a stairwell with bruising around her neck, and her two-year-old daughter crying nearby. Toni was declared dead at the scene, but the child was not physically hurt.

Retired Tennis Star Gets Tackled And Wrongfully Arrested, Now The Cop Is Suing Him

All too often we see stories in the news of police brutality and misconduct. Though it is so often portrayed in the media, it is important to remember that it is not all cops, just a few bad apples that give the rest of them a bad reputation. Videos of young black men being gunned down in the street by officers or stories of evidence tampering garner major headlines, and the story is usually the same.

NY Daily News

But one case out of New York City is changing the usual narrative, and not for the better. In 2015, retired tennis pro James Blake was standing outside his hotel when he was tackled to the ground by NYPD officer James Frascatore, who was dressed in civilian clothes at the time.

This was a case of mistaken identity that was taken way to far. The NYPD originally states that Blake had not been “manhandled”. However, Blake was able to obtain the surveillance footage from the hotel, which blatantly proved otherwise.. Only then was an apology forthcoming.

But the story gets even stranger…
