There's been a recent phenom in New York to look up. A vertical city with so much happening overhead, we humans tend to look down. We look at our feet or our phones, even looking at eye level seems to be a chore for us, so the idea of the head tilt up can be almost unfathomable. Unless you're standing at the base of the Empire State or Rockefeller, many of the buildings you pass you will not see past their street presence. You won't see their green roofs and you wont see their relationship to the city. Recent efforts from taxis installing roof windows (making them more like London taxis) give this vista back to New Yorkers. Just when you think you've seen it all, there's a whole part of the city left to explore.
New York is a big city made up of towns. You walk down one street quaint and dainty, turn a corner and you're in an industrial wasteland or next to a mega-scraper. This city is wild and each of it's neighborhoods hold different vibes. So can you tell them apart? Let the map above be your guide. Guess away!
