Thread: Midtown Manhattan Height Map

  1. #1

    Default Midtown Manhattan Height Map

    I made this map to try to show the denstiy of Midtown Manhattan
    I counted 122 buildings over 500' in this area alone
    About 200 over 400'
    This includes only finished and U/C buildings to the best of my knowledge.
    Refer to the bottom of the map for the colour codes

    Cool map. It would be cool, if its full of highrises.

    It is. It's just that we don't have too many high-rises that are over 1,000 feet, much less 800. It seems that the great majority are from 500 to 800. We all know that's a little too short.

    The midtown skyline is most often viewed as a line of buildings stretching along a north-south axis,
    but the map proves that it is just as broad on an east-west axis.

    Nice job! Now do downtown.....

    I've had some time on my hands lately, so I retooled it to show colors by general year and style period. Sorry I forgot to change the colors at the bottom, but it goes from red to dark blue, pre-depression to 2000's. Excuse the sloppiness, it's a work in progress.

    That map is obviously a labor of love. There was another post here about a year or so ago. It was a model / map of New York City under 400' of water. That one was extremely interesting to look at.
