Well, of course I must mention my site:

http://www.rovingrube.com/Rupod.htm

On behalf of which I solicit NYC photos and notes from any and all users of this site.

Here are some others:

Carter B. Horsley's long-running treasure trove of his writings about NYC Skyscrapers, which tends to come up as often as wirednewyork.com in Google searches for info about a particular building:
http://www.thecityreview.com/home.html

Another long-running and continuallly getting bigger and better site:

Norman McGrath took the excellent and wonderful full-page photos for Eric P. Nash's book "Manhattan Skyscrapers", which was published in 1999.

He is the son of Australian-born architect, Raymond McGrath, who designed the devine St Ann's Court, a white Meier-ish house in Chertsey, Surrey in the UK (1936-37) (if anyone's interested in 1930's residential architecture in the UK, check out "The Modern House Today" by Nick Dawe/Kenneth Powell, which contains photos of St Ann's Court).

He has a website containing quite a few photos of NYC, amongst other places:

Kew Gardens looks like a very agreeable residential neighbourhood.

http://www.skyscraperpage.com/forum/showthread.php?s=41e60457ee81f1879eb2858da19910ab& threadid=27551

The Kitty Genovese link on the website seems to dispel the legend surrounding this very high-profile and (popularly perceived) shameful incident.

Perhaps I should have put this here. Pictorially, the website is a very good representation of this not-oft-seen neighbourhood, even if you don't agree with the opinions expressed about the Kitty Genovese case. I'd be interested in what other forumers think about the views expressed on this website and/or your own opinions.

http://www.razorapple.com/ - a website about New York City and what’s happening on the street, both literally and figuratively. Razor Apple is published regularly with content of varying depth, length and quality.

http://newyorkhack.blogspot.com/ - Pictures from an NYC cab driver.

http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/ - No description, but I'll sum it up... it's a site where people submit funny/odd conversations that they eavesdrop on. I laugh at this site every day. Gives you that "Only in NY" feeling.

http://www.forgotten-ny.com/ - Website that tells you about the far corners of NYC and all of it's history. Updated twice weekly with a different area/neighborhood. Still waiting for her to get to the Brooklyn nabe I was raised in :)

www.HabitatMap.org (http://www.HabitatMap.org), a Brooklyn-based non-profit dedicated to building sustainable cities through citizen action has recently released an online community mapping and social networking platform (http://www.habitatmap.org/markers) that some of you may be interested in.

To get an idea of how it works, check out the thematic maps (http://habitatmap.org/markers?maps=72,73,77,78,79,80) we put together in collaboration with the Newtown Creek Alliance (http://habitatmap.org/profiles/56).

HabitatMap is a wiki so any registered participant (http://habitatmap.org/sessions/register) can establish a marker, edit an existing marker, or make a map.

The vertical city is the subject and celebration of Stewart Mader's photo-blog Elevator View (http://www.elevatorview.com/). The site features dozens of images of New York's skyline taken amidst the skyline. The resulting perspective is simultaneously grand and intimate. Mader began the project in January 2011 when he was working out of the 22nd floor of a midtown office building with views that included "Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, the Burberry Building, Palace Hotel, St. Bartholomew's Church, Park Avenue, and Madison Avenue (with glimpses of the rising 4 World Trade Center)."

After capturing those buildings, Mader started bringing his camera along whenever he was visiting someplace with the potential for views. His site is meant to serve to deepen people's appreciation of the "importance, vitality, and awe-inspiring beauty of these urban landscapes."
