Thread: Can anyone help identify these buildings in Manhattan?

  1. #1

    Question Can anyone help identify these buildings in Manhattan?

    So, I'm working on a project and I need help identifying the buildings I have marked and numbered in the picture below (click to see it bigger). If you know the names or addresses of any of these buildings, I really need to know.

    I also need to know if any of these buildings are newer than 1962.

    Any help would be very greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I doubt anyone will be able to answer, but you should try yahoo, in the architecture section.

    That circular building all the way to the right middle is penn station NY. Google Earth that then rotate and zoom you will find the rest. I would figure them out but I'm on my phone. I'll figure them out tomorrow if you or no one else has.

    *edit * another starting point. 5th Ave and w 36th is the corner where building 7 is located. But that's the best in gonna get on my phone when I need to be sleeping.

    Actually that's Madison Square Garden - the black rectangular building next to it is Penn Station.

    Anyway, it turns out my ex-boyfriend knows New York like the back of his hand and was able to help with a few of them (which is odd, because he lives in San Francisco and has actually never been to NYC xD). Google Maps and Bing Maps were a slight help, albeit not much.

    The reason I needed to know is because I'm writing a book that takes place 50 years after the Cuban Missile Crisis sparks WW3, and I'm editing this picture to put on my website. So since I'm basically making the city look war-torn, I just edited out any buildings I wasn't sure of and replaced them with generic, unidentifiable ruins. (See hidden text at the bottom, it's a lot more creative than it sounds.)

    Thanks anyway, guys! I do appreciate that you at least tried.

    And about my book, in case anyone is interested:

    I see a lot of people using the term "intergalactic" but not exactly knowing what it means (looking at you, Bioware). Just so you know, in case you don't, it does mean between multiple galaxies, not within the one galaxy. That would be intragalactic or interstellar.

    Bronx Warriors springs to mind, aesthetically. and not just that one, there were a number of films which made use of the NY degeneration/remodelling of the late 70s/early 80s.
