The Skyscraper Museum
October 16, 2001 12:10 AM   Subscribe

The Skyscraper Museum is a very educational site about high-rise buildings and offers some great information about the history of the skyscraper. But the most interesting part of this site is the Manhattan Timeformations, which offers a series of well done Flash animations that are both interesting to watch and educational. I hope this post won't be deemed too touchy of a subject for this time, because this site gives some real insight into a subject that is very American...the skyscraper.

I am looking forward to the Museum finally reopening in its permanent new home in the Ritz-Carlton building. According to this New York Times article the building's opening, which was supposed to have happened this month, has been delayed until next year. Now word on what this means for the Museum.

Speaking as a lay-person (architecture-wise that is): great stuff.
