Picture of the Day: Evolution of the New York Skyline

 

EVOLUTION OF THE NEW YORK SKYLINE

In this fascinating composite image we see the evolution of New York City’s skyline from 1879 to 2013 (when One World Trade Center will be complete). New York city is often hailed as having one of the greatest skylines in the world (other candidates include Hong Kong, Chicago and Singapore) and it’s interesting to see how it once looked back in the late 1800’s.

What city do you think has the best skyline? For me, I have to go with Hong Kong followed closely by New York City.
