Background: The Peking Government has reportedly paid nearly five million dollars (nearly two million sterling) for the Lincoln Square Motor Inn in Manhattan, New York.
The ten-storey building will be used by Peking's United Nations delegation, which moved in on Sunday, March 15. The hotel has 260 rooms, a restaurant, conference room -- and a swimming pool.
A Manhattan hotel - bought by the Peking government.
The price was reportedly nearly five million dollars -- luxurious living and office space for Peking's United Nations delegation. With two-hundred and sixty rooms, the hotel is just a brisk walk form the U.N. building.
Ton storeys high, the hotel has its own swimming pool. Peking won a place in the United Nations -- and a permanent Security Council seat with veto powers -- last October. At the same time, Chiang Kai-shek's Taiwan regime was expelled.
Meanwhile, the Lincoln Square Motor Inn restaurant has gone Chinese -- Poking style.
