Photo by myself, in Midtown.
Many of the buildings in Midtown are not astronomically tall.
The heights of the buildings vary depending on where you are. Midtown is broken down into smaller neighborhoods, but overall, the area spans from 59th Street to 14th Street.
The buildings in this view are about 15 to 25 stories tall. In the middle distance, you can see some townhouses that are 5 or 6 stories tall. Teeny.
You get a hodge podge of buildings standing next to each other. Some are very modern, others are pre-war buildings. The landscape is constantly changing.
By the way, like the rest of the country, it's been very hot and humid here. Those walking around all day on the street should take care.
