The excellent newsletter New York YIMBY (Yes In My Back Yard) newsletter recently provided renderings¬†showing how an array of supertall skyscrapers under construction promises to redefine the Midtown New York City (NYC) skyline, hearkening to 1920s Manhattan, which had a varied skyline full of character. The mostly residential, luxury buildings will, YIMBY says, “showcase New York’s continued dominance as the pre-eminent global city.” They stand approximately 800 ft. above street level.
