The Sky Scraper Museum
Why is it that every time I ask any outsider about New York, I always get the same reply of busy evening streets, Starbucks on every lane, and without a miss, New York’s skyline? It seems to me that these heights now make a signature of New York. The glorious and splendid skyline of New York is one of the most effervescent realizations of this city. With the world’s most intelligent designs, the city is most beautiful in the evenings with setting sun, just like the climax of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead.
If you are fan of its skyline then you can not afford to miss The Skyscraper Museum, now located in the southern tip of Manhattan, New York City. The museum opened on May 1, 1997 and is the only museum in the world of this kind. Just like the name suggests, the museum projects skyscrapers as "objects of design, products of technology, sites of construction, investments in real estate, and places of work and residence."
The museum’s exhibition includes special tours, changing exhibitions, and constant events. The most striking feature of this museum is it’s stainless steel floor design, that gives the exhibition area look like standing 40 stories in the air over a Manhattan street.
With its famous new section called China Prophesy, the museum makes a beautiful presentation of Shanghai’s evolving identity as a skyscraper metropolis including Jin Mao, Tomorrow Square, Shanghai World Financial Center, and the new super-tall Shanghai Tower.
If you are planning to visit this intelligently designed exhibition then do make sure your accommodation choices are right.
