You people say the skyline was much more impressive back then before the more modern towers were being erected, hiding them from most of our photogaphs. I disagree. The towers are not gone, they are playing hide and seek. That is apart of the cities mytique. Everyday for almost twenty five years now I have seen something new in dear old New York City. New towers, people, businesses, shops, nothing stays the same. Nothing is ever constant. Whether you like it or not, New York City is a city of change. Old towers will be replaced with the new and people will go off to live with their families in the suburbs. It's always in motion and it really never sleeps. But to me, that is what makes the city special and different from every single city out in the world. And trust me I have been to a lot of cities. Sure the demise of a once important structure is sad, but without that, New York would have never grown into the foundations that make it one of the most important cities in the world. I wouldn't change a thing about. Every angle I look at it it is beautiful.
