world pictures The Eastern United States: Manhattan: Rivers, Rocks, Brownstones, Highrises

Tee design was by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, and the AIA guide to the city considers the result "the closest Manhattan offers, conceptually, to the 'blocks' of Le Corbusier, his 'machines for living.'" Can you hear the kibitzer? "Some life." (Norval White and Elliot Willensky, AIA Guide to New York City, 2000)
