Dear Minecraft community,

I have to ask you something. As you know, this project is abonded at the moment but I've tought about some further updates on this project. Now I want to ask you:

Do you want to see further updates?

Just let me know.


Yours, C_B_John.

The Manhattan project was orginally founded to recrete New York City in some of its best decades. It was also a point of matter, modern kapitalism architecture, wich is just meant to be functional, isn't beauty as well. This project is meant to remember the last decades on earth when architects prefered visual arts (with a light influence of modernism, e.g. Art Déco) to design their buildings. When I started this project there was no 1:1 replica of the city in Minecraft and/or in other games, and in fact of that I was a real fan of this city and skyscrapers, I decided to do New York City. So I started this project.

A comparison, how the skyline have been changed:

About New York City in the time:

Over the time I met guys, who are as interesten as me in the city, the time and all. These guys worked hard with me to get this maybe one day done. I'm the one who did the mathematically work and I also did all the facade replicas, while my mates assists me in that and helped me out with rest of the buildings.

This Project offers:
  • a 1:1 recreatet street layout of Lower Manhattan in the 1930s!
  • over 400 unique, real existing buildings (a lot of them are demolished today)!
  • atmospheric details!
  • famous enterable interiors, such as lobbys, churches and more!
  • the possibillity to explore history by your-self!
In fact that this project is just an exterior replica, there are no general interiors such as lofts, offices and stores.

The Comparison to the real:

St. Pauls Chapel.
undefined
Woolworth Building.
undefined
Bownling Green Park & Broadway.
undefined
Wall Street & Trinity Church.

The Apocalypse Edition. : 10/14/2014 8:06:33 am10/14/14

Hello there!

Today I can proudly say that I've finished a post apocalyptic version of the city. For farther information check the submissions main page.

The features are:
  • lovely and atmospheric details, such as abonded vehicles, destroyed buildings and vegetation spread all over the city.
  • collapsed buildings.
  • tracks of a millitary invasion.
  • a lot of secrets to discover!

Should the project go on? & Brooklyn Bridge! : 09/06/2014 6:47:19 am9/06/14

A question to the community after the long inactivity of this project.

Do you want me to build regulary farther on this project to get newer downloadable versions of the city?
Just let me know.

- C_B_John

EDIT: This Update log is not just senseless, I've also added Brooklyn Bridge yet after a long time of inactivity (it will be eventually included in the next major update). Some Progress Screens:

I have also to say, that we've made a great progress near wall street. We have finished the street Block near the Equitable Insurance Building and are about 50% done with the one where the Stock Exchange is. Some nice Screens of the progress:

Very important note about the Terms of Use. : 02/20/2014 1:39:09 pm2/20/14

updated the use perms. please read them carefully and follow them!

Finally, the DOWNLOAD! : 01/11/2014 10:40:03 am1/11/14

DOWNLOAD UP NOW! (v0.1)


That means that I've finished the download-version of this map. This version is not the full map, it is missing out 20 Exchange Place, 70 pine Street and almost all of the empty streetblocks. The Pulaski Skyway is also not included!

The download is coming in the near future! : 01/02/2014 10:34:21 am1/02/14

Download is coming the next days.

Get prepared to explore mighty Manhattan by yourself! I'm currently working on the download-version of the map wich will include about 50% of the city. To save some space I'll cut only the finished Streetblocks out.

Sad News. : 11/23/2013 9:27:23 am11/23/13

IMPORTANT MESSAGE!

This Project is abonded. I dont have the time to lead the project further. If you want a release of it in 2014, let me know it in the comment section. If enought people wants a release, I will release the unfinished map on 1st January 2014. Until then there must be more than 100 people who really wants the map. Otherwise it wont worth for me to create a release map for a couple of people.

Yours, C_B_John

Post Office & Time Change. : 07/26/2013 10:55:05 am7/26/13

First of all: I've done some work on the Submission. You didnt wanted that to hear? alright, alright, There is one new major building, the City Hall Post Office! I rebuild it after we had removed it a few months ago. That also means that the time, in which the map is set, changes, the time changes from the 1940s to the 1930s. Lower Manhattan will be now a 1930s replica!

Yeah there was an update but it just includes the last video of the map. Thanks for your interest in that project anyway!
So there won't be any updates in the future of this map, I become even more interested in detailed architecture of the industrialisation epoch. Im going to upload a few of these projects soon.
