New York Skyline Windows 7 Theme is dedicated to the incredible skyline of New York city which is known for it’s iconic skyscrapers. New York is the most populous city in the United States and is one of the most iconic metropolitan cities in the world. New York has been synonymous with skyscrapers and rapid development since the 20th century. New York City also called by many as the City of New York or often only New York is part of the state of New York. It is also regarded as the cultural capital of the world and has been a dream destination for people all around the world. It is also one of the most densely populated regions of the world with a population of over 8 million in just 305 square miles. This population density is also one of the main reasons why the city has a high density of skyscrapers. In fact, New York city had held the record of the tallest buildings in the world for a major part (1908 – 1973) of the 20th century. The first such skyscraper which held the record for world’s tallest building was the 47-story Singer Building (demolished later in 1968 to make way for One Liberty Plaza) completed in 1908 as the headquarters of the Singer Sewing Machine Manufacturing Company. However, it was surpassed the next year by another New York skyscraper Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower which held on the record for more than three years until it was surpassed by the 57 story Woolworth Building in 1913. The Woolworth Building remained the world’s tallest building for the next 17 years when it was surpassed by the 70 story Bank of Manhattan Trust building (also known as 40 Wall Street or the Trump Building) in 1930. However, the Bank of Manhattan Trust building held on the world’s tallest record for only about a month or so before it was surpassed by the Chrysler Building which was completed the same year. In 1931, after holding on to the record for 11 months, Chrysler Building was surpassed by another iconic 102 story skyscraper Empire State Building. Both these buildings were created to conform with the 1916 Zoning Resolution which required setback in new buildings, and restricted towers to a percentage of the lot size, to allow sunlight to reach the New York streets below. Empire State Building held the record of the world’s tallest building for the next forty years till the World Trade Center (destroyed in 2001) surpassed it in 1972. The WTC held the record for more than a year before the Sears Tower (now renamed as Willis Tower) in Chicago surpassed it in 1973. Sears Tower held the record for the next 25 years but WTC towers had more floors (at 110) than any other building in the world. This number was not surpassed until the advent of the Burj Khalifa, which opened in 2010. Other iconic skyscrapers of New York include the Bank of America Tower (2008), New York Times Building (2007), American International Building (1932), Citigroup Center (1977), 8 Spruce Street (2010), Trump World Tower (2001), GE Building (1930), CitySpire Center (1987), One Chase Manhattan Plaza (1961), Condé Nast Building (1999), MetLife Building (1963), Bloomberg Tower (2005) and Times Square Tower (2004). Many of the New York skyscrapers were constructed primarily in the two decades of rapid infrastructure development 1930s and 2000s. Most of the skyscrapers are concentrated in the city’s Manhattan borough (mainly in Midtown Manhattan and Lower Manhattan). Empire State Building is the tallest skyscraper in the city since 2001 though it will be surpassed by the under-construction One World Trade Center on completion. All these skyscrapers have been symbolic to the New York city and it’s skyline for the last 100 years. This theme contains 10 HQ backgrounds of New York skyline.
