[WATCH] The Evolution of Midtown Manhattan's Skyline From 1908 Through Present Day

With a new building constructed or replaced almost every year, the Midtown Manhattan skyline is constantly under flux. In this informative animated video rendering from COMMERCIAL Café, see the highlights of the Midtown Manhattan skyline evolution from 1908 through present day.

At the close of 2018, we took our skyline series into New York City and looked at the evolution of the Lower Manhattan skyline. In part two, we focus on Midtown, specifically skyscrapers located between 14th and 59th streets. The short video included below presents a 110-year Midtown Manhattan skyline overview, which tracks the completion of buildings between 1908 through 2018 that are at least 500 feet tall.
