Now, that’s planning ahead! 2

JISHOU, HUNAN — Well-to-do Chinese love to dote on their “little emperors and empresses,” but one Chinese mother has raised the bar by purchasing a $6.5 million Manhattan condo for her daughter to live in while she is in college.

Her daughter is two years old.

Apparently, this doting mother expects her darling to attend Columbia, NYU or Harvard, according to news reports. (Mom needs to brush up on American geography, I suspect.)

The property in question hasn’t even been built yet. According to CBS News, it’s the proposed One57 project, a rectangular glass-and-steel monolith overlooking Central Park south.

    This is the same project that made some news when Hurricane Sandy hit the City and partially collapsed one of the construction cranes.

    Aren’t you glad the mother hasn’t mentioned PU?
