Newspaper Steals Empire State Building
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. It took just 90 minutes for the New York Daily News to steal the Empire State Building. As part of an investigation into how easy it is to swipe a building. Journalists transferred the ownership deed for this legendary address with a forged notary stamp. One of the witnesses, Fay Wray of "King Kong" fame. The buyer, Nelots Properties - that's stolen spelled backwards. The Daily News 'fessed up and returned the Empire State Building the next day. It's Morning Edition.
