THE WORLD'S FIRST FLOATING APARTMENT BLOCK BEGINS TO TURN IN SYDNEY.
The world's first floating apartment block, The World, begins a turn
March 7, 2003 to afford all the apartment owners their fair share of
the view of Sydney Opera House. The harbour was brought to a standstill
as ferries and other passenger craft were forced to sit and wait as the
44,500 tonne giant liner moved out of its berth and then turned around
and came back in allowing those who didn't have the view for the past
couple of days their turn. REUTERS/James Morgan
