The building form most closely associated with New York City is the skyscraper, which has controversially shifted many commercial and residential districts from low-rise to high-rise. Surrounded mostly by water, the city has amassed one of the largest and most varied collection of skyscrapers in the world.
New York has architecturally significant buildings in a wide range of styles spanning distinct historical and cultural periods. Here we can see a nice view from the architecture of NYC.
I took this photo from HighLine Park from where we can see the Empire State Building. The Empire State is a 103-story skyscraper with a total of 1,454 ft (443.2 m) high. It is a giant between the near buildings and still the second taller building in Manhattan.
On the left size, the smaller black building is the One Penn Plaza located between 33rd and 34th Street, west of Seventh Avenue, and adjacent to Pennsylvania Station and Madison Square Garden. It is the tallest building in the Pennsylvania Plaza complex of office buildings, hotels, and entertainment facilities and was built in 1976.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.Un beau mélange de bâtiments dans l'ombre, d'autres au soleil avec le géant qui veille sur les plus petits, comme un grand frère.

The famous high-rises naturally dominate the New Yew skyline but the the lower brownstone buildings are equally typical for this city. A very good picture here where the iconic Empire State Building is placed far away and the lower brick buildings are allowed to dominate.

un composition bien pensé et bien cadrée; j'aime bien cette vue avec les toits et le jeux d'ombre et lumière.
C'est très graphique et très agréable à regarder.

A view that shows the original image of NY, but unmistakable, for the vision of Empire, standing out from the other roofs, stunning blue sky.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.
