New York City’s skyline is instantly recognisable, even when half-covered in fog. Eight of the United States’ 10 tallest buildings reside there, all in the borough of Manhattan. One of New York City’s most famous landmarks, the Empire State Building, was the world’s tallest building for 41 years. Now, One World Trade Center is currently the tallest building in the US thanks to its towering spire. It’s impossible to visit the city without constantly looking up at the modern marvels that we’ve built in the last 150 years.
