A Beautiful, Handy Guide to New York's Most Iconic Buidings

Drawing / painting / photographing  the buildings of New York City is a popular (and pretty ) hobby, and the latest architectural artistry from  Pop Chart Lab   distills the streetscape  down to  54 significant structures , from local monuments like the Washington Square Arch to the world-famous  One World Trade Center  to the historic  Plaza Hotel . Called " Splendid Structures of New York City ," the poster orders the buildings by height and includes each building's address, year of construction, and architectural style. A few things to note: Pop Chart Lab used each building's  full height, including spires , so One World Trade Center is listed at 1,792 feet, not 1,776 (same goes for the Empire State Building and other skyscrapers on the chart). Additionally, the construction date is the  year construction started  on the building. "We decided to go with the date of construction since some buildings undergo constant or lengthy renovations/additions,"
