Looking up in New York

Manhattan is often depicted as brash and corporate, a city of gleaming new skyscrapers. In reality it’s an old city, saturated with time and history. Architecturally it’s a laboratory where all styles jostle for attention. In Park Avenue and the Avenue of the Americas, you’ll find the shiniest, gleamingest International Style/Late Modern towers at their totalitarian best. The most famous of them, the twin towers of the World Trade Centre in Lower Manhattan, went down on this day nine years ago.
