Culture: Birth Of A Skyscraper II

New York City is a living organism and always changing. In spite in a sluggish economical environment you could see a lot of construction going on.

Last August I reported the birth of a skyscraper ( drivebycuriosity) in Manhattan´s financial district. I showed the cranes and other huge engines that were engaged in the preparation of the huge building. Since then a lot has changed and the house "jumped" into the air.

It´s especially fascinating how they managed to fit the skyscraper into the already tight neighborhood. The new tower has been squeezed between the other buildings, increasing the density of the highly dense and cramped area.
