Considering NY barely has any history (very old buildings) then it's not right saying that. Yes the 5th Avenue church/cathedral looks awesome surrounded by skyscrapers, but just look at this...




Frankfurt out-does NYC easy when it comes to mixing old and new, and thats just one city.

Anyway, not meaning to go off-topic - I just wanted to prove a point, or disprove a blanket statement.

I picked out Frankfurt as an example, but there are many MANY city's that out-do NYC in terms of mixing old architecture with new. You'd have to be a fool to think that NYC is the pinnacle of architectual diversity.

Are you kidding me? I think you need to look up the definition of an insult.
I'm not even going to bother with you.

Maybe the poster meant mixing of old and new skyscrapers or stuff like that, then in that case, New York City obliterates London since London isn't much of a skyscraper city, but its working on that. Maybe only Chicago can really be on par with NYC in that sense. And even then, NYC has just hundreds of buildings more.

As in terms of just structures or buildings, then yes many European cities will win by default because they have been around much longer.

Anyway Beekman is looking amazing and HUGE lol. I think I'll go and take some pictures tomorrow, if not then definitely next week.

In fact, New York City is older than: St. Petersburg, Russia; Tel Aviv, Israel; Bangkok, Thailand; Washington, D.C., and Hong Kong. That is not counting the fact human settlement on Manhattan Island goes back more than 2,000 years.

History does not only describe the actual age of a place. Certainly cities in the Indus and Nile Valleys and Mesopoltamia are much much older than anyplace in the British Isles or Western Europe. That doesn't mean other places don't have much of a history.

New York City has a very distinguished history from the founding of Nieuwe Amsterdam by the Dutch, as a battleground in the War of American Independence, it's growth in the Industrial age, the city of historic and remarkable engineering feats such as the Brooklyn Bridge and the other bridges and tunnels, as the headquarters of the United Nations, etc., etc, ad infinitum.

1,000 page books have been written on the history of New York. There is an encyclopedia just devoted to New York City.

I have a very dear friend who lives in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, very close to Sheffield. I'll wager Barnsley is much older than New York City (I think it is mentioned in The Domesday Book in medieval times). That doesn't make Barnsley "more historic" than New York.

Quite a few cities succeed in mixing old and new, including NYC, London and Frankfurt. I don't see the use in fighting over it.

Yes. People just have to be careful when they use the world "only" or "best".

Wow! Spectacular this is rising amzingly. A new juwel for N.Y and a great contribution for the skyline!

I can't say enough of how beautiful this building is, yet how unfortunate it is that the developer butchered one of the undulating sides and opted for a flat wall.
