You didn't say anything disrespectful and your English is definitely better than my Chinese so it's okay

Why is New York´s skyline divided in 2, is there a height restriction in the middle of Manhattan?

All the skyscrapers in New York are either in Midtown Manhattan or Lower Manhattan. As to why nobody builds skyscrapers in that middle part, I'm not sure.

Sort of. The Landmarks Preservation Commission has designated a large swath of Manhattan between TriBeCa and Midtown South as historic districts.

In those areas, development is extremely limited, especially in terms of height, and even lowrise developments have to go through a rigorous approvals process to determine whether they fit the character of the neighborhood. I haven't been able to find a single map that collates all of the districts, but you can take a look here to get an idea.

There are certainly gaps between historic neighborhoods in which a few tall things could potentially rise... but then you'd also be dealing with the wrath of the NIMBYs in what are (unsurprisingly) some of the very wealthiest parts of the city.
