I love this post, and I love plep, and I don't care who knows it! I just finished reading the companion book to Ken Burns' PBS history of the city, and I'm in full fledged NYC Mania. Thanks for this, plep!

You just made the list, jonson.

Does anyone have a direct link to a picture gallery page? On this site or another? I love NY architecture.

squirrel, where does this list exist? I think (if I'm not remembering wrong) that you mentioned dg was on it too, so I'm thinking it's a good list, since dg is pretty cool), but I could be getting my mefites confused. Is the list publically available?

"The city wouldn1t stand still long enough... " (from the second link)

You'd think they'd take the time to convert the fowled apostrophes. Guess the Grey Lady's editorial department has other things to worry about.
