That's how I believe future generations will feel about the new skyscrapers shaping the skyline now. Our skyline is being altered in many ways, and in different boroughs.
But for future generations, it will be the only New York they have known. The photos we take of the skyscrapers rising now will seem like ancient history by then, even just
20 years down the road.

Quote:
“You know, Metropolis was born from my first sight of the New York skyscrapers in October 1924, before I went to Hollywood where UFA was sending me to study American methods of production. It was terribly hot at that time. While visiting New York I felt it was the crucible of the multiple and confused human forces, with blind men scrambling around in the irresistible desire to exploit one another, thus living in perpetual anxiety. I spent an entire day walking the streets. The buildings seemed to be a vertical veil, very light and scintillating, a luxurious backdrop suspended from the gray sky to dazzle, distract and hypnotize. At night the city gave only the impression of living; it lived as illusions do. I knew that I must make a film of all these impressions.

Just mindblowing. New York was much closer to architectural perfection in the past, especially relative to the rest of the world.
