Very cool, like a wierd jigsaw puzzle. I like the values as the buildings get closer to the viewer.

That's one of the things I miss about Manhattan.

Haha, you'll think me an enormous geek, but I actually recognise that building with the circular cutout on the rooftop from the Spiderman 2 Playstation game. All of Manhattan Island is faithfully recreated in the game... and you get to swing around it as Spiderman.

Ahem.... *cough-NERD!*

Sounds like you need to get out more ;-)

No, I watch movies set in NYC and always think: "I've been there", "I've eaten there", "That's one of my favorite places"!!! I love it though when they try to shoot in downtown LA and fake Manhattan. It always looks totally fake to a New Yorker. Downtown LA is just way too small.

Ha. I'm Australian; our cities don't feature in many movies so we don't get to go "oh, I've been there!" when watching films. Must be rather novel. From the second-hand viewpoint I've formed watching a thousand different films set in NYC, I get an impression of general griminess and a feeling of age and organic decay, almost like an ancient mouldering forest standing tall, dark and imposing.

That can be true, all too true in some neighborhoods, but New York is an amazing plaything in the hands of a true urbanite. There is so much to do there it's amazing. Summer abounds with so many free activities almost every day of the week that it's impossible to do everything you have an interest in.

It can be imposing to the beginner. Perhaps only Tokyo compares to Manhattan for sheer complexity, scope, and cosmopolitan atmosphere. I once had a life long Chicago native tell me that when he moved to New York he felt like he'd never been in a big city before? It is definitely not for everyone, but if you can absorb the energy from the streets it's the most invigorating place I've ever been!

Yeah, I daresay it's probably not for me. Rich trendies irk me no end, and crowds make me all slashy and stabby... But I do like the architecture.
