Our common perception of the city, however, is about to change as new skyscrapers are being designed and built. Architectural firms such as Zaha Hadid Architects, Bjarke Ingels Group, SHoP Architects, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Herzog & de Meuron, and Ateliers Jean Nouvel are leading the movement.

Why do so many of New York's older skyscrapers have a similar design? The answer can be traced back to a monumental 1916 zoning law, which established “setback” requirements for buildings above a certain height. In the heart of the Financial District, the Equitable Building, a historic skyscraper that predates the law, remains a symbol of the excesses of the pre-zoning era.

Driving Downtown Streets - 34th Street - New York City New York USA Starting Point: 34th Street and 10th Avenue https://goo.gl/maps/5pSk1fCuMNU2 . 34th Street in Midtown Mahattan is home to the famous Empire State Building which is the 2nd tallest building in New York City. 34th Street is also a major shopping street, as well as a major crosstown street, connecting the Lincoln Tunnel and Queens-Midtown Tunnel, which are two popular ways to get on and off the island of Manhattan. On Fifth Avenue one finds the Empire State Building. The second tallest building in the city, it stands on a rare ledge of solid Manhattan schist dominating the skyline. Slightly north, at 38th Street and 5th Avenue is Lord & Taylor; the oldest department store in the United States. At the far end one finds bulky luxury residential buildings and a great number of dogs patronizing the pet care parlors that serve the pure-bred loving populations of Kips Bay, which is the name of both the neighborhood and its eponymous bend in the East River where 34th Street ends. At the riverbank are the FDR Drive, the East River Greenway for bicycling to the south end of Manhattan, a small parking lot for New York University, the East 34th Street Ferry Landing (NY Waterway, SeaStreak), and the East 34th Street Heliport. 34th Street is a major shopping street. Though it endured a decline in the 1970s, it rebounded late in the 20th century with new stores and new energy. A giant video board and light display at 34th and Broadway is like a mini Times Square. Between Seventh Avenue and Broadway, one will find Macy's, the famous department store immortalized in the Christmas movie Miracle on 34th Street. It claims to be the "world's largest store." The annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade ends on 34th Street. A block south of 34th, at Sixth Avenue and 33rd Street, is the Manhattan Mall, an indoor shopping mall built inside what had been the flagship location of the Gimbel's department store. Branches of large chain stores also operate between 8th and 5th Avenues. Further east at Eighth and 33rd, the Post Office and Penn Station dominate on the south side of the street, serving Amtrak trains to destinations all over the United States and Canada, and Long Island Rail Road and New Jersey Transit trains to suburbs. Above Penn Station sits Madison Square Garden, which calls itself "the world's most famous arena". The grand stairs of the James Farley Post Office are built on the scale of the former Penn Station. The architecture of the post office gives a flavor of what the area was like in the height of the railroad era. On Ninth is B&H Photo Video, a large retailer of photographic and electronic equipment. Attractions Empire State Building Macy's Hudson Yards buildings Congregation Beth Israel West Side Jewish Center Manhattan Center New Yorker Hotel One Penn Plaza New York City Pennsylvania Station Manhattan Manhattan is the most densely populated borough of New York City, its economic and administrative center, and its historical birthplace. Many districts and landmarks in Manhattan are well known, as New York City received a record 61 million tourists in 2016, and Manhattan hosts three of the world's 10 most-visited tourist attractions in 2013: Times Square, Central Park, and Grand Central Terminal. The borough hosts many prominent bridges, such as the Brooklyn Bridge; skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building; and parks, such as Central Park. Chinatown incorporates the highest concentration of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere, and the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, part of the Stonewall National Monument, is considered the birthplace of the modern gay rights movement. The City of New York was founded at the southern tip of Manhattan, and the borough houses New York City Hall, the seat of the city's government. Numerous colleges and universities are located in Manhattan,including Columbia University, New York University, Weill Cornell Medical College, and Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top 40 in the world. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan

Designs for ‘The Big Bend’, a slender tower that would transform Manhattan’s skyline, have been unveiled. Described as the ‘longest building in the world’, the project's concept drawings reveal a skyscraper reaching an apex then curving back down. And featuring an elevator system that can travel in curves, horizontally and in loops. In a bid to work around the challenges of New York’s zoning laws, design studio Oiio has imagined an innovative concept to straddle Billionaire's Row on 57th Street. Stretching 4,000ft-long, the glass-lined tower would need to feature an elevator that goes far beyond all current designs. Explaining the change in architectural direction, the team cited that since the emergence of One57, in 2014, everything changed for 57th Street. By the first quarter of 2016 there was a 625 per cent increase in its sales average, they claim. This has recently prompted a trend for skinny skyscrapers or 'super-slenders'. The team's press release states: 'There is an undeniable obsession that resides in Manhattan. It is undeniable because it is made to be seen. There are many different ways that can make a building stand out, but in order to do so the building has to literally stand out. Thanks For Watching Please Share This Video!

Driving Downtown Streets - 6th Avenue / Avenue Of The Americas - New York City New York USA Starting Point: 6th Avenue https://goo.gl/maps/vNVWCaXKdVS2 Sixth Avenue - officially Avenue of the Americas - is a major commercial avenue in New York City with the nickname of Skycraper Alley in the Midtown Manhattan area. The majority of New York City's skyscrapers, including its tallest hotels and apartment towers, lie within Midtown. The area hosts commuters and residents working in its offices, hotels, and retail establishments and is populated by many tourists, visiting residents, and students. Times Square, iconic as the world's ""heart""and its ""Crossroads"", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theater District, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. The Avenue of the Americas holds the headquarters of three of the four major U.S. television networks. Midtown Manhattan, or Midtown, represents the central lengthwise portion of the borough and island of Manhattan in New York City. Midtown is home to some of the city's most iconic buildings, including the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the headquarters of the United Nations, and it contains world-renowned commercial zones such as Rockefeller Center, Broadway, and Times Square. Midtown Manhattan is the largest central business district in the world and ranks among the most expensive and intensely used pieces of real estate in the world, and Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan commands the world's highest retail rents, at US$3,000 per square foot ($32,000/m2) in 2017. While Lower Manhattan is the main financial center, Midtown is the country's largest commercial, entertainment, and media center. It is also a growing financial center, second in importance only to Lower Manhattan's Financial District in the United States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midtown_Manhattan With a record 61 million tourists in 2016, Manhattan is often described as the cultural, financial, media, and entertainment capital of the world and the borough hosts the United Nations Headquarters. Anchored by Wall Street in the Financial District of Lower Manhattan, New York City has been called both the most economically powerful city and the leading financial center of the world, New York County is one of the most densely populated areas in the world, with a census-estimated 2016 population of 1.6 Million living in a land area of 23 square miles (59.13 km2), or 72 Thousand residents per square mile (27,799/km2), higher than the density of any individual U.S. city. On business days, the influx of commuters increases this number to over 3.9 million, or more than 170,000 people per square mile (65,600/km2). Manhattan has the third-largest population of New York City's five boroughs, after Brooklyn and Queens, and is the smallest borough in terms of land area. Manhattan is home to the world's two largest stock exchanges by total market capitalization: the New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ. Many multinational media conglomerates are based in Manhattan, and the borough has been the setting for numerous books, films, and television shows. Manhattan is historically documented to have been purchased by Dutch colonists from Native Americans in 1626 for 60 guilders, which equals roughly US$1050 today. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manhattan Sixth Avenue begins four blocks below Canal Street, at Franklin Street in TriBeCa, where the northbound Church Street divides into Sixth Avenue to the left and the local continuation of Church Street to the right, which then ends at Canal Street. From this beginning, Sixth Avenue traverses SoHo and Greenwich Village, roughly divides Chelsea from the Flatiron District and NoMad, passes through the Garment District and skirts the edge of the Theater District while passing through Midtown Manhattan. Notable buildings and events Sights along Sixth Avenue include the surviving stretch of grand department stores of 1880 to 1900 in the Ladies' Mile Historic District that runs from 18th Street to 23rd Street; the former wholesale flower district; site of Macy's department store; and the corporate stretch above 42nd Street, which includes the Bank of America Tower, W. R. Grace Building, International Center of Photography, Rockefeller Center — including the Time-Life Building, News Corp. Building, Exxon Building and McGraw-Hill Building, as well as Radio City Music Hall. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixth_Avenue_(Manhattan)

SUMMARY Filmed from a moving boat, the film depicts the Hudson River (i.e., North River) shoreline and the piers of lower Manhattan beginning around Fulton Street and extending to Castle Garden and Battery Park. It begins at one of the American Line piers (Pier 14 or 15, opposite Fulton Street) where an American Line steamer, either the "New York" or "Paris," is seen docked [Frame: 0120]. The camera passes one of the Manhattan-to-New Jersey commuter ferries to Jersey City or Communipaw . Proceeding south, the distinct double towers of the Park Row, or Syndicate Building, erected in 1897-98, can be seen in the background . A coastal freighter is next , then Trinity Church appears, to the left of which can be seen the Surety Building, as a tug with a "C" on the stack passes in foreground . Several small steamboats come into view , and the B.T. Babbitt Soap factory at Pier 6 is seen , followed by the Pennsylvania Railroad piers (#5 & #4), with a group of docked railroad car floats , and the Lehigh Valley Railroad piers (#3 & #2), also with car floats . Next are the Bowling Green Building (rectangular, with facade to camera) , the Whitehall Building (vertical, thin side to camera) , followed by Pennsylvania Railroad Pier #1 . Pier A (with a clock tower) is seen with the New York Harbor Police steam boat "Patrol" at its end . The Bowling Green Offices and the Produce Exchange at Bowling Green are visible in the background. The breakwater (sheltered landing) and the New York City Fireboat House appears  and the distinctive round structure, Castle Garden, once a fort and immigrant station, but at the time of filming the City Aquarium, comes into view . The camera then pans east along the Battery Park promenade: the Barge Office (with tower) is visible in the distance , and further out the Brooklyn shoreline with the grain elevators at Atlantic Avenue can be seen . This view is continued, with only a minor break in continuity, in the film Panorama of Sky Scrapers and Brooklyn Bridge From the East River. Together they comprise a sweep around the southern tip of Manhattan, from Fulton Street on the Hudson to the Brooklyn Bridge. From a contemporary Edison film company catalog: SKY-SCRAPERS OF NEW YORK CITY, FROM THE NORTH RIVER. A Beautiful panoramic view of lower New York from Barclay Street to Battery Park, showing a beautiful stereoscopic effect of the sky-scrapers in the business section of the city. Old Castle Garden, at which place hundreds of thousands of emigrants have landed from time to time, but now used as an Aquarium, is also seen in the picture.

Building a daringly formed new skyscraper in a city renowned for its skyline, is no easy task. With significant height, numerous cantilevers and an extremely small footprint, New York's "56 Leonard" proved highly challenging to engineer and construct.

Construction at 35 Hudson Yards, known as Tower E, started construction in 2015. It is part of the 28-acre site designed to house 16 skyscrapers to be built over the top of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s West Side Yards. Hudson Yards is the largest construction project of its kind. Contractor Tutor Perini was selected to coordinate the fabrication of the core steel to support the 79 story mixed used Tower E building. 80,000 pounds of weld metal were used. After switching to Lincoln Electric’s Innershield NR-555, production rates tripled. Welding was performed with Lincoln Electric Flextec® 450 and 650 racked welders

TV Series - Metropolis The shot tells the story of New York Cities skyscrapers from 1930 until the present day. To create the shot we built NYC as complex computer generated (CGI) models in different decades. To add to the complexity, many of the construction of the buildings is animated and played in reverse.

Once upon a time New York City's builders blithely turned spectacular monuments into dust. Henry James complained about Manhattan’s "restless renewals,” but in the old days nostalgia was for writers and poets. Developers were preoccupied with building the future. This ethos of creative destruction allowed New York to become the world’s preeminent city. And then fifty years ago this Sunday, Mayor Robert F. Wagner signed the Landmarks Preservation Act. The law made it illegal to destroy any structure that the city’s planning elite deem too important not to save. Today almost a third of the buildings in Manhattan, and more than 33,000 structures citywide, may as well be encased in a life-sized historical diorama. To illustrate the damage done by this law, let’s imagine that the Landmarks Act had been passed not in 1965, but in 1865, when the spire of Trinity Church still towered over Lower Manhattan. Modern New York wouldn’t exist. Consider Henry Hardenbergh’s original Waldorf-Astoria, which was an architectural masterpiece and Manhattan’s leading luxury hotel. If the Landmarks Commission had been around in the Jazz Age, surely it would have protected this great structure — and then it never could have been torn down to build the Empire State Building, which occupies the exact same spot. If the landmarks commission had been around to save architect Stanford White’s majestic Madison Square Garden, the second of four structures with that name, Cass Gilbert’s New York Life Insurance Building couldn't have replaced it. Forget about the hustle of Midtown Manhattan—this entire block would still be home to Columbia University’s pre-1897 campus. The old London Terrace wouldn’t have cleared a path for the new London Terrace, instead of the Woolworth Building, Philip Hone's luxurious townhouse would still stand here right here next to the old American Hotel, and we might still have this old church instead of the celebrated Met Life Tower. The landmarks commission not only protects individual buildings, but also 114 districts, meaning entire neighborhoods are essentially frozen in time. Manhattan’s Upper West Side became a landmark district in 1990, but what if it had earned that distinction in 1890, to preserve its Gilded Age character? These hulking apartment buildings never would have replaced the distinguished brownstones and mansions that once occupied these blocks. The district certainly would have been expanded one block west to include The Apthorp House, which quartered General Washington among other colonial bigwigs and would still stand right here near 90th Street and Columbus Avenue. Before landmarking, sure there were plenty of great buildings replaced by plane jane skyscrapers, but that’s also part of how cities grow and evolve. For example, would New York really be better off if Temple Emanu-el still stood right off Times Square? In 1847, native New Yorker Washington Irving reflected with nostalgia on growing up in a city that was “a mere corner” of what it had become, and that corner “all changed, pulled to pieces.” This 50th anniversary of the landmarks preservation act is an opportunity to mourn the opposite: all the invisible buildings that will never exist because of a misguided law. What if an earlier generation had outlawed the rise of skyscrapers and spread of asphalt pavement? Washington Irving would still feel right at home.
