Development heaven. Where all the developments of the world hope be reincarnated. ESB is starting to look like an infant. Also, all of the developments along the East River, and Gold Coast are beginning to resemble a Hong Kong feel. Flanked by towers on both sides of the river. More on the East, but if JC continues its boom, its essentially a Kowloon. What the area needs is a signature tower for JC. A supertall on the JC side would be sweet; not to mention that it would make for an amazing vista. What this rendering doesn’t show is LIC, which is poised to become a denser DoBro if the developments keep rollin’ in.
Pic is old but I like the viewpoint. (Like, really, really old. Look at HY, 57th street, etc. Yikes)
Visited Little Island Wednesday, nice view of the skyline from out in the Hudson.
Stills are from The Dronalist.
Does anybody know where this image was taken from? Also, does anyone have an updates picture from this angle? It is the best wide-angle picture of the city I have ever seen!
