When people come over and look out into the skyline, they want to know what building's what. Usually it's just simply, "Is that the Empire State Building or is that the Empire State Building?" So I made this chart because I'm all about giving TMI.
You can read a little more about this process but mainly how I got this apartment in Greenpoint in /latest.
Manhattan’s avenues aren’t laid out north to south because that would be inefficient. Instead, it runs parallel to the rivers, making the general layout of the island about 29° off from true north.
So I bought a couple compasses to modify them to point in the direction of a Manhattan north instead of a magnetic north, because nothing’s worse than coming out of the subway and walking 10 blocks in the wrong direction.
