New York City's Most Iconic Buildings, Mapped

Fact: No city's skyline is quite as iconic or beautiful as New York City's. Chicago may be the place where the skyscraper was born, and cities like Seattle and San Francisco have recognizable landmarks, but New York is where some of the world's most important buildings—the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Seagram Building—can be found. And even as supertall towers rise up around those icons, their beauty and importance can't be dwarfed. But New York's landmark buildings aren't limited to tall towers: Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library are the pinnacle of Beaux Arts beauty, while outerborough landmarks like the Unisphere in Flushing, Queens, show that architectural innovation isn't merely limited to Manhattan.
