I get where he's coming from. There is a uniqueness to the look of NYC that's hard to put your finger on. I'm not only talking about the highrises, but the other elements as well, such as railings, the look of parks, signing, and on and on...

This is awesome, but I can't help but be reminded of a Monty Python stop-motion scene when looking at it. Half expect a giant foot or a pair of alien ships to knock down the Twin Towers.
