I'm making a scale model of Midtown Manhattan. I started with building the Chrysler Building in 2013 and from their I build more and more buildings and streets.

Every building has a realistic lobby and has elevators to go to different floors and often even to the roof. The buildings have shops on street level to. Some famous buildings are fully furnished like the Chrysler Building, Metlife Building, Tower 49 and the Citigroup Center.

Why am I building this? Because I really like New York and because I'm inspired by other NY projects on Planet Minecraft.
Do you want to read a cool review? Read this or view this!

Some facts about this project so far:
There are hundreds of buildings like...
- 20 subway stations
- 1 train station
- 35 furnished theaters
- 1 Cinema
- 4 congress halls
- 7 furnished churches
- 2 public parks
- 1 furnished library
- 6 fully furnished skyscrapers/buildings

Minecraft version I'm using: 1.14.4

Texturepack I'm using: Emfires 64x64 Realistic Texturepack
(with the glass and terracotta textures of Misa's Realistic Texturepack)

When using this texture pack, I recommend OptiFine for better results!
I also recommend the BSL shaders pack for realistic views.

See, anytime people say that Minecraft is boring, not creative, or you can't do much with it, I simply show them stuff like this.

Wow! There is no proper way to describe the feelings of amazement this grand work inspires in me! This map might well be the best one I have ever played (without any contempt for other contenders of course, they were pretty good ones too). This map features all the buildings in correct albeit reduced scale (something like 1:2, isn't it?), it includes the interiors and yet it is a completely realistic and fun map to examine at the same time. I could spend weeks or even months exploring every corner and hidden sight within the map, finding more new perspectives of the streets and buildings and their inside faculties each time. The city seems to be vibrant and full of life, full of hidden pathways and secrets to discover. I, for one, have never even visited New York, barely America once, but I felt I would become more intimately acquainted with the city than a week-long trip could do. For the current corona pandemic and travel restrictions, it is particularly good to be able to "visit" cities in this manner without actually setting foot on the ground.
These are all staggering achievements in and of themselves, but considering that you have made this map alone, the effort you have put in is immense. For even a dedicated team of enthusiasts or a large-scale public server this would be a massive undertaking, but it is unbelievable that this would be one person's work. Manhattan buildings are taller and in more grand scale than buildings in general in most cities, so I suppose building a skyscraper does take more time than regular building?
All self-grandeur aside, I think I am a good person to say this because I have tried making a Minecraft map of my city myself. I know how much work that can take. Of course, compared to yours it is very small-scale, very small potatoes, despite all the time, effort and research I have put into it. I wonder how did you ever find the time to make your map! Though I have wasted a considerable time of my life on this particular game, I could find little in the way of education, work, hobbies, family, friends and other responsibilities! Even if I did I would not want to stare at the monitor all day :D So, greetings and thumbs up from Finland, keep up the good work!

Thanks for your reply! I an glad that you like the map.
I am the only builder of this map and it started in 2013. It is a lot of work but I like to work on it in the free time I have.

At the beginning of the map in 2013, I didn’t measure the streets and lots. Therefore the scale of the map is not quit acurated but there is notting to do about anymore. Anyway, I try to make each building as good as possible.



I hope you keep following my posts and I wish you a lot of fun with this map!
