NEW YORK CITY, USA

#3

New York City has one of the densest and most diverse skylines, with a huge collection of buildings and building styles. Thanks to artists' and Hollywood’s obsession with the city, it is also the most easily recognizable skyline in the world. New York City has an amazing collection of 48 buildings that stand over 200 metres - the most in the world! New York city probably has the greatest heritage in terms of skyscrapers, building the world's first commercial super-tall. The four tallest buildings in NYC were all built in the early 1930s! Home of the famous, now destroyed World Trade Center Towers, the Empire State building, the Statue of Liberty and the United Nations, New York City is the financial capital of the western world and loaded with plenty of grand hotels for tourists. New York's skyline probably has the most compact and overwhelming collection of architecture from almost any point in the city. New York skyscrappers pattern do create a skyline effect against a horizon, but it is probably a better view from the inside looking out and about rather than looking at it from afar. Best View(s): NJ's Liberty State Park, Fulton Street Pier Under Brooklyn Bridge, Staten Island Ferry
