The TV show “Fringe” partly takes place in an alternate universe. One thing that is intriguing about that universe is how the skyline of New York City looks. The still-present Twin Towers are an obvious choice, but the domed skyscraper is especially intriguing. Turns out that this building had been planned for NYC in 1908 by Gaudi. Imagine that. It is called the Grand American Hotel. Fringepedia lists more differences between the universes. Amusing: Alternate universes tend to have Zeppelins in them.
