New York City Skyline in 1932
Today New York City is a buzzing metropolis. More than 19 million people live in the city’s metropolitan area. Over 170 languages are spoken in the city, making it the most diverse city in the world. New York City is also the 2nd largest center for the film industry in the world (behind Los Angeles). The city also boasts 50 completed skyscrapers that stand over 200m tall – the most in the world.
3 of the most famous buildings on the New York Skyline (the Chrysler Building, Empire State Building and 40 Wall Street) were all built in the 1930s. As of June 2008, the entire city is the site of 191 skyscrapers that rise at least 152 m in height, with 24 more under construction. This photo of the New York City Skyline was taken in 1932 and has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 18th of June 2012.
