New York in 2032

A more or less art deco-ish New York, inspired by Fritz Lang's masterpiece "Metropolis". Note the presence of the now tiny Empire State Building. Let's get back on this image in 24 years maybe...Interestingly enough, the large multi-level sidewalks are inspired by the conceptualized New York of the Future of Harvey Corbett, who envisioned elevated and arcaded walkways connected by footbridges in 1923, and thus leaving the entire ground plane of the city to car traffic and bad smells. New York as a Venice of modern ages.

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
