In an extraordinary move it appears that a major US corporation may be about to purchase Manhattan.

The unusual move was initially laughed off but has been given credence by the Mayor's office not being prepared to deny the move.

The list of possible purchasers is quite short but includes several major multinationals which are severely cash positive and struggling to know what to do next with their money. Another possible route is for an asset stripper to purchase the island and split it up for sale in chunks.

Various hedge funds are also believed to be lining up bids now that the borough is 'in play'.

Mortgage providers are on standby to support a loan which could solve the lending crisis all at once.
