Level 75 : Legendary Architect
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 recreated 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.
Bownling Green Park & Broadway.
Wall Street & Trinity Church.
West Street & The Downtown Skyline.
