The Beauty of a City Skyline

One of the most beautiful things to me is the New York City Skyline.  In particular, The Empire State Building is extremely remarkable.  The Empire State Building was constructed in 1931 and held the title as the tallest building in the world through 1971.  The construction of this building symbolized money, power, and innovation at the time.  The ESB was the world’s first tallest building and New York became known as “The World’s City.”  Today 27 of the world’s tallest 100 towers are located in The US and this truly reflects much on our progressive culture.  Architecture and real estate are two of my favorite things.  To me, city skylines are beautiful pieces of artwork and just like a canvas painting, tells a deep story.
