The New New York Skyline


“Manhattan is in the midst of an unprecedented boom in tall buildings. Before 2004, Manhattan was home to 28 skyscrapers 700 feet and taller. Since then, an additional 13 have been built, 15 are under construction, and 19 are proposed—47 more in all. These additions are rapidly—and radically—changing the skyline.” National Geographic 2015

“In the days before the luxury mishmashes of the High Line and Hudson Yards on Manhattan’s West Side, the closest thing the city had to a Starchitect Row could be found on (or near) East 53rd Street between Sixth Avenue and the East River. There rose a promenade of classics: Eero Saarinen’s Black Rock, MoMA’s Goodwin/Stone home, SOM’s Lever House, Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building, Hugh Stubbins’s Citigroup Center, and Philip Johnson’s Lipstick Building.”
