From Long Island City looking south through Brooklyn, Verrazano in 12 miles away.
I love how none of this is Manhattan:
And yet still Denser than all other US cities…
I recommend taking a visit to this photographer’s flickr page. No words for the quality of these aerial shots.
I smell a before and after
So streetscapers pic two post above showing 1940
1940 vs Oct 2016
Similar angle in 2016 late (october)
Its crazy how even then, the size and scope of the city would put the majority of current cities to shame
3 World Trade looks awesome in those photos!
