Watching the classic skyline being walled off it makes me sick as a native New Yorker.
As a New Yorker, you shouldn't be. There was a New York before the Chrysler and Empire State buildings, for example. But the energy of New York is always about "moving" and change - like it or not. It's that energy that makes it the place it is, and the place so many people want to be. If it weren't for that, you wouldn't see so many new buildings going up. It wouldn't be the city so many people want to visit. I may not like a lot of the new buildings going up, I"m not particularly pleased with this one, but I know they have a right to build it. It's a city of skyscrapers, our favorites aren't always going to win the day (or view). There's a particular view of the Empire State from Broadway and 32nd that I've always loved, and now that's blocked by some random new apartment building on 32nd Street. Oh well. That's New York. It's constantly shifting and changing. You have to adapt. Time moves on, and what could be considered the skyline of the New York we know will not be considered the skyline of the New York of the future. I always say we haven't seen the best New York, and New York isn't done.
NEW YORK. World's capital.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
