New York is a dream destination for many. Some like it because of the amazing and unique architecture. Some because of the food and overall scene, others because it’s the city that never sleeps. Well, we can’t make up or mind on the reasons why we love New York, but we can definitely say which buildings we would love to see.
Find out which ones we selected!
This peculiar triangular building has been one of the most famous. Built over a century ago, in 1902, it is a true New York landmark and one of most famous worldwide. At the time Flatiron Building was built it was thought it would collapse, as the unusual shape faced strong winds, but it did not and it even appeared in several films such as Spider-Man.
Unusual shapes are a huge trend right now, check Covet House for inspiration.
One of the most iconic buildings in New York’s skyline. The Chrysler Building, an Art-Deco skyscraper, was for 364 days the tallest building until the Empire State Building was built. An interesting fact is that Walter Chrysler funded the entire construction alone.
Empire State Building
The Empire State Building is definitely the most famous skyscraper worldwide and the most iconic in New York.It has been featured in numerous films, being the most memorable one, King Kong, is the famous scene we are all thinking about. It is no longer the tallest building in New York, but it was for a while. There is a great observation deck on the top that you must no miss out.
LUXXU has an entire collection inspired by this beautiful building. Check one of the items here.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral
Now onto smaller buildings, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral is a neo-gothic treasure in the middle of tall and modern skyscrapers. It’s located right in the middle of the action, on 5th Avenue. It was built in 1865 and has gone through intensive and costly renovations from 2012 to 2015.
The Ansonia, built as a hotel is certainly not very known, but it’s a unique building in New York’s skyline. Nowadays it houses $12 million condos and rented units. It’s located on the Upper West Side. We think this would look great on pictures!
