Picture this — Mayor Bloomberg, a guy who rarely watches TV, now has the world’s largest high-definition plasma television adorning his famous “bullpen” at City Hall.
The 103-inch monster, which retails for $70,000, was donated by Panasonic and was on display yesterday as the bullpen re-opened after a two-week, $627,000 makeover.
“A lot of people from the NBA would have these in their homes,” said a proud Panasonic executive after posing for pictures with the mayor. He said the company hopes to sell 5,000 around the globe this year.
In addition to the usual news channels, the TV will display 311 call statistics and a video feed from NYC TV’s live traffic cameras.
