Even after having lived in NYC for over 8 years now, I am still struggling with the outdated measurement system on this side of the atlantic. Thank god I don’t work here as an architect, I wonder what those buildings would look like. I am sure I’d be able to build a floor as high as the half floor in the “Being John Malchovic” movie. Ha! Core77 shows a “Not Metric Map” of the world. I am stunned that the US is not the last one standing on this one.
