I am curious as to why there are no skyscrapers in between lower Manhattan and midtown, or, above Central Park going north. Is it simply economics of different neighborhoods, or, is the bedrock in different areas of Manhattan Island less suitable for supporting skyscrapers?

Your about right. At first then steel was first used for buildings, midtown and lower manhattan had the strongest bedrock so they just built skyscrapers in those areas as there wasnt enough technology yet to build in places with not as strong bedrock.. Thats how you got the 2 financial districts. And people build skyscrapers in financial districts so thats why theres no skyscrapers bewtween lower manhattan and midtown and north central park.

Just as steel erecton has slowed down, photographers on Flickr aren't taking enough pictures (maybe the cold weather is another reason why people prefer to stay at home rather to go down and take some nice pics)... I hope that during spring I can find enough pictures to post all of them here.

Because the people who live there don't want them there.

I did a rough paint job with the last picture how WTC1 will look like in the skyline when seen from the vantage point.



If i'm on scale, than it won't have a very big impact on the skyline.
