    Default Abandoned New York City

    Found this one online and was taken by it. A bit eerie, despite the ESB mysteriuosly crossing the East River.

    The guy who made this was inspired by this movie for sure.

    We should probably rename this thread "Apocalyptical New York - Share your Photoshopped Images"

    I'm glad someone piped up about that.

    It seems to be in the photo realism style except, of course, the actual view isn't realistic in this case, although known landmarks are easily recognisable. It's a stunning painting. I love it.

    I've always liked Richard Estes' photo realistic paintings of New York.

    Some of these great old buildings can and are being saved. All it takes is someone with vision. The High Line comes to mind. Pics include Domino Sugar and Grossinger's Resort.
