New York Takes to the Skies Again

Berlin is not the only city whose skyline is being constantly punctured by the pinnacles of newly constructed skyscrapers. In New York 15 buildings over 700 feet are currently being constructed - 19 more are in the pipeline.

National Geographic has created a plan view of New York's skyline showing how it will look when all these new skyscrapers have been built. The New York City Skyline shows the view of New York, looking from the direction of Brooklyn. As you scroll down the page the plan of the city skyline moves, giving you a panoramic view of the city from Lower to Midtown Manhattan.

Skyscrapers under construction are shown in orange on the panoramic image and proposed skyscrapers are colored yellow, You can mouse-over any of the colored skyscrapers to view its name and its completed height.
