Photographer's Note

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.
