The level of activity in LIC is mind boggling, I find it even more impressive than Brooklyn just because within a couple of years, it will look like a new skyline popped out of nowhere.

Great video by the way Nexis! It looks like there's a building u/c on every block and that doesn't even include the waterfront which has a few more buildings planned, or even Astoria. Flushing is going through a building boom of its own too, Queens is booming.

Wow. That's pretty amazing.

Is that glazed terracotta? You just don't see that anymore compared to the cheap precast brick/concrete panes and curtain walls.

That's modern 'engineering' for you. It's no longer about quality, but instead about getting a building up the cheapest and most ramshackle way possible.

I long for the day when you contribute something more than your ridiculous hyperbole. Of course everything built pre 1950 was a masterpiece, seriously change the record and stop ruining a great thread.

New York is looking fantastic, having been a regular visitor/worker over the last 8 years the improvements are huge and constant, I'm loving the art deco influences which have come back in a big way of late. Impressive stuff across the island and long may it continue, over in London we could do with some of the NY spirit and courage to push the boundaries ever now and then.

Upper East Side 60 E 86th st

A plain but nice classically styled high-rise in the Upper East Side that we're not even following here, I certainly hadn't even known about it.














Here it is totally buried in the densest area of the Western world, the Upper East Side. (look about an inch up from the upper right-corner of the white and black building in the foreground).

Looks like some sort of revival of 1930s Rationalist architecture.

I agree, much of the stuff going up in New York is very impressive, and I share your thoughts on the new buildings which take inspiration from traditional architectural styles. I've never said otherwise. In fact, I think that New York is building some of the best modern projects in the Western world. Perhaps you interpreted my comment incorrectly; I never criticised the terracotta building, I criticised modern engineering, much of which I do feel is inferior to the engineering of the past. You may disagree, and you are welcome to disagree. But this is a forum (from what I've gathered) where you should be prepared to encounter opinions which are foreign to your own.

That gem is from Thomas Jull Hansen the famed and talented Bjark Ingels's fellow countryman who designed One57's interiors and is currently working on "The Beekman" and "50 west"(interiors)
He is actually involved in many projects in New York both as an architect and an interior designer.
...Aside 60 east 86th,here is a sample of his talent:
210W77th








505 west 19th st





Hirtenstein residence








.....Jull Hansen designed most of the furniture....(!!)

Lower East Side Development

High resolution rendering of the westernmost building of the Essex Crossings megaproject. This particular building will be bounded by Essex, Ludlow, Delancey and Broome streets.

Funny enough, I knew a lot about this because I live on the street it''s on, 86th. Funny to think you guys didn't know when I've been living amongst the construction for over a year.

Cool!.. Snap a few pics for us, next time you're out and about? I'm curious about the facade, from the rendering it looks like it will have grooves in it to give it a nice texture.
