THE CITY LAYOUT


The city’s ancient bedrock provides the immovable FOUNDATION for hundreds of modern SKYCRAPERS. New York has more of these awesome structures than any other world city. Architects may argue about the origin of the modern SKYSCRAPER, but most agree that MANHATTAN was where structures with steel skeletons were combined with the elevator to create a genre of buildings where great height could be reached practicably; the very word was coined in the 1880s to describe this New York phenomenon.
