    Your Manhatta series is getting really interesting. I’m really into these.

  3. That’s a lot of visual overload for me. But your photo certainly portrays the closeness of the city. What are those tower/bin type structures atop so many of the buildings?

    • Those are water tanks. Water is pumped from pipes below street level into tanks. Gravity helps maintain consistent water pressure throughout the building. There are only two companies left that build and maintain these water tanks. Occasionally they freeze and burst open in the winter, depending on their age.

  4. Thank you for explaining about the water tanks.
