I saw the New World Trade Center with its lights on at 4am this weekend and personally I think it looks like shit and does not do any justice to what the former World Trade Center towers represented. It’s too generic in a mashed-up skyline like New York and is not representative of the uniqueness of the city.
OK not really a throwback because technically I wasn’t there lol. This was taken by my cousin. It’s the Lower Manhattan skyline on the Hudson River. I just love this picture because it’s really heartwarming how much progress the City of New York has put into the new World Trade Center, and how much the city has been able to rebound since 2001. You can’t ever knock the will of New York down.
Check out this amazing work of art by British artist Jenni Sparks!
It’s a hand drawn map of New York City, including parts of Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens, as well as Liberty and Ellis Islands. The tiny buildings were drawn in black ink, along with New York City landmarks, while colorful subway lines and parks balance the black and white city scape. The map’s most charming features are the signs and icons representing the most notable aspects of each neighborhood.
Trying to find your neighborhood is an interesting task, you’re more likely to get swept up in every fantastic detail along the way!

If you ask a New Yorker what rhymes with “New York”
They’d probably answer “walk, talk, chalk…”
The Empire State Building is going to be lit up scarlet red in honor of Rutgers for our Big East championship game over Louisville.

LET’S FUCKING GO.
It will cost $600 million to fix the South Ferry - Whitehall subway stations. Another $650 million to restore A train service to the Rockaways. And repairing signals in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan will be another $770 million.
Sandy really did this station in :/
No doubt should be the theme song for the BROOKLYN NETS.
The instrumental just screams New York City
