Hey there's the Shandor Building in Ghostbusters Anyway, those beams coming from Ground Zero looks striking.

Uptown looks pretty laidback compared to Midtown or Downtown

Uptown is mainly a residential area, so it's not as busy or tall as the more commercial Midtown or the Financial District.

I would hardly think comparing the Upper West Side or Upper East Side to suburban areas elsewhere would be fair at all. First of all, those two districts are not even suburban.

true true. But like you said the area is primarily residential. Though The Upper East Side is one of the most expensive residential areas in Manhattan.

Residential does not equal suburban. Many cities have vibrant residential areas downtown, such as Vancouver.

You can't. You have to upload it in an online photoalbum like photobucket or flickr.
