SKYLINE the exhibit shows the evolution of Manhattan’s past, present and future.
The newest exhibition at the Skyscraper Museum takes us on a trip through New York City’s history. Our city’s skyline is constantly changing and the exhibition examines how New York has come to be the city it is today.
The exhibition is broken down into five periods beginning from 1876 and stretching into present day. They explain,
“there are millions of Manhattan skylines – viewed across time, from myriad vantages, by countless observers. This exhibition attempts, for the first time, to simplify and organize New York’s nearly 150 years of skyline development into five significant periods in which buildings take characteristic forms shaped by economic, technological, and regulatory factors. Today’s city is a collage of multiple eras, built and rebuilt over decades. Under- standing the constituent factors of the five formative periods allow us to read urban history in the glorious jumble.”
How do you experience the city’s vertical wonders? You can catch the exhibition now until January 2019.
