Times Square, New York Panoramic Picture - Twilight

SKU: NYTS3
This panorama of Times Square was taken by James Blakeway. In 1904, long before the showcase of neon lights and digital big-screen technology, the area named Longacre Square, located at the junction of Broadway and 7th Avenue, stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets, was renamed Times Square. Fast forward 100-plus years and, today, Time Square is a symbol of the American spirit and a popular tourist destination. It is one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections and a cultural mecca of entertainment. It is here that the New Year's Eve ball is dropped and the ever-changing NASDAQ sign reports the fortunes and misfortunes of a nation.

New York, NY Skyline Pictures

In 1777, when New York City adopted its constitution, New York skyline pictures were nonexistent. The best records consist of drawings or artistic renderings of buildings and topography at the time. Even moving forward, past significant New York boasted moments such as the first steamboat line (1807) and the first regularly-scheduled rail service (1831), New York skyline pictures didn't exist. Since that time, notable changes since the development of the camera have erupted New York skyline pictures into representing one of the most famous skylines worldwide.

New York skyline pictures represent different views of its five boroughs: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island. While the sheer gargantuan size and all of the historic buildings can never be truly represented in any of the New York skyline pictures, many breath-taking views are available. The five boroughs are almost surrounded by a 520 mile coastline often used as a foreground for New York skyline pictures. It's because of this encompassing coast line and vast size that New York skyline pictures have so many different views available.

Manhattan is the oldest area of New York City and was the most densely populated of the five boroughs until the 1930s. New York skyline pictures often showcase this area well as it represents many of the most well-known skyscrapers in the city. Lower Manhattan is often referred to as the financial capital of the United States and is often a focus of New York panoramic pictures. It has also housed nine different buildings that once held the title of "World's Tallest Building" from the 1870s to mid-1970s. The geographic center of New York City is located between Brooklyn and Queens. Looking at New York skyline pictures it's often forgotten, yet awe inspiring, that the city holds a population of over 8 million. That's almost half of New York State itself.

The most recent and drastic change to New York skyline pictures occurred Sept. 11, 2001 with the destruction of the World Trade Center towers. Their absence has drawn inspiration for exciting new architectural changes, yet has given a status to past New York skyline pictures as a nostalgic and historical remembrance.

What's in the future for New York skyline pictures? Most importantly will be the "One World Trade Center", a.k.a. "Freedom Tower", scheduled to be completed in 2013. Other projects have been approved and are expected to mark future New York skyline pictures, including 15 Penn Plaza, a 1,216 foot tall tower. Future beauty can also be expected when looking into New York skyline pictures, as most buildings will exude brilliant light through their more contemporary glass wall exteriors. Past or present, New York skyline pictures are, and always will showcase a world-renowned view to behold throughout history.
