300 East 85th Street, New York NY 10028

The building is 36 stories, has 199 apartments and was built in 1987. It is called The America and was designed by Helmut Jahn from Chicago. There are well over 100 buldings in Manhattan that are taller. This calculatorsuggests that a 33 floor apartment would be 366 feet above ground while this Web page shows the building called 40 Bank Street in London England has exactly 33 floors.

Before as we discussed I thought you wanted to seperate the audio, having two different zones.� Good catch on the device, but what you will need is just a solid receiver with enough power and input capacity for your devices.� I have suggeated the Onkyo TX-SR507 from Bhphotovideo.com. Look it up and check out the specs you will not be disappointed and for the price you can't go wrong.� Please let me know what you think and we will take it from here. This unit also has 4 HDMI inputs so you can add both the cable box and dvd player and still 2 available inputs for future devices.� This unit actually come out cheaper than what we originally decided.� Well take care and hope to hear from you soon.
