Manhattan ViewAbout this photograph
Since the end of the 19th century, skyscrapers have been a symbol of the visual identity of New York. They are mainly situated on Manhattan Island. Numerous buildings on the island form the unmistakable ?Manhattan skyline.? It consists literally of the line of the horizon formed by the skyscrapers. Through their height and shape, many of these buildings are easily identifiable. ?Manhattan View? depicts downtown Manhattan.
