I'm busy with making a scaled model of Midtown Manhattan. I started with building the Chrysler Building as highest building in the area. From their I build more and more buildings and streets.

Every building has a real lobby and elevators to go to different floors and 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 LOVE New York and because I'm inspired by other NY projects on Planet Minecraft :)
Do you want to read a cool review? Read this!

Some facts about this project so far:
There are...
- 17 subway stations
- 1 train station
- 26 furnished theatres
- 6 furnished churches
- 2 public parks
- 1 furnished library
- 6 fully furnished skyscrapers/buildings

Minecraft version I'm using: 1.7.10

Texturepack I'm using: Misa's realistic texture pack and Misa's realistic texture pack patch by PSCOf42
(And some changes by my own)
To get nice textures, I recommend OptiFine!

This map is a genuine work of art! I have really been enjoying learning more about NYC by running around in your very accurate Minecraft version of Midtown! For example, three weeks ago I had no idea St. Patrick's Cathedral or the Pulitzer Fountain existed.

I turn on debug a lot to get my xyz position and take a lot of notes so I can get back to things I run into that look cool, like Bryant Park for example! Several times when I notice something in your map that sparks an interest, I hunt it down in Google Maps.

What is even cooler than that, I have recently started opening your map to see how you sculpted one thing or another that I run into while wandering around in google maps/earth. When I know the address of what I want to find in your map, it doesn't take long at all!

I use the /tp command a lot and have compiled a notes file that has the coordinate ranges for all the streets and avenues, so it's a snap to beam myself into any intersection. After a while, if I find myself going back to the same place over and over, well that's what command blocks are for!

I read/scanned through most all of the comments, and wasn't surprised to see several suggestions for future building additions. I would encourage you to continue building the stuff that inspires you to build so artistically. The way you can turn blocks into curves and arches is amazing!

Penn Station/MSG and Columbus Circle stand out as noteworthy places not too far from where you have developed blocks. At the same time, filling in more of the middle might be a better use of your time, it all depends on what your mood is I guess.

Many thanks for sharing this Minecraft masterpiece with us!

Thanks for your great commend! You hit the right spot to say that building stuff depends on my mood :)
Right now I'm busy with building Tudor City along the east coast. (With unitites nations building near by)

One thing I'm not happy about is that the lengths of the streets are not quite right with each other. But I see no option to fix this for the whole map. I guess I build just futher and try to fit the building in te streets :P
MORE THEATERS MAKE THE GERSHWIN THEATRE WITH WICKED SET

Hey the city is perfect can i use your map in my animation minecraft ? i credit you^^
Bas,
The city looks absolutely stunning so far! Being a New Yorker myself, I can confirm that every detail is spot-on. I just had two questions for you. First, I was wondering if you planned to build beyond Midtown. I believe you have built everything between 59th and 34th Streets, and between Lex. and 7th Aves. It would be amazing if you did expand. Also, I was just wondering what the structure was on 39th St. between 5th and 6th that you included. It is definitely a subway station you built, with indications for the 1, 2, and 3 trains, but no station exists in that area in real life. The stations itself that you built is above-ground and appears to be incomplete. I was just wondering if you could tell me about it. Anyway, I am so glad that I was able to see this truly amazing creation! Thank you very much!
Regards,
BatmanElmo_NYC

Thanks for your comment.

The subway structures you mean are models that I copy to make subway stations underground :)

I want to build beyond Midtown but it is a lot of work. Maybe in the future I will get that far.
Do old Penn Station.
you will do the BROADWAY theater?????1

The latest version of this map is breathtaking! There are a few places like Ripley’s Believe it not and MOMA that don’t seem to be there yet? Any updates on the next version or on future additions?

How do I install this on Windows 10? I am on Minecraft v1.2.0 which I downloaded on the Windows App store.

- I cannot find a *.mcworld file in the folder, which is what the program looks for.
- I cannot find the .minecraft folder as instructed in the readme.txt. I have hidden folders displayed and nothing comes up.
- I also attempted to access the minecraft folder within Program Files/WindowsApps and couldn't find a Saves folder.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
you might not have to double click the folder it will just pop up tho
C:\Users\willi\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\saves

this always works for me use extract all and double click the folder you just extracted
and drag the folder that is in the extracted folder and put it in saves

Hey dude! I wanted to know if you planned to build the One Vanderbilt, as well as other skyscrapers under construction?
(Central Park Tower and 111 west 57th street for example)
  • BasVerhagen
  • Level 61
  • High Grandmaster Architect
  • November 17, 2017, 1:22 am
Yeah maybe. Like 432 park avenue is still under construction in this map while its finished in real life.
I will build One Vanderbilt when its nearly finished in real life :)

New York is changing so quickly. Like the Marriott Marquis Hotel on Times Square is changed in real life. There is now a big billboard in the front. In this map its still like the old version of the hotel. So I have to change that as well.
Ok, great thank you! And good luck to you!

Strange. It’s only Trump tower. That tower looks smaller. The world tower looks a little bit taller. Will you built the lower side of Manhattan?

What is the scale on it? Is it one block to one foot? Or some other scale? i was wondering because i wanted to make a Minecraft map with the whole united states, and was planning on using this for New York. If you want, we could talk more in private.

Are you going to do the One Vanderbilt bldg. next to Grand Central? They already cleared the block for it, but the tower itself won't be completed until ~2020.

I love this so much. It amazing all the work you put into it. I'm not even sure if you even look at this much any more or not but my friend and I are working on a big project and need a map to use so I personally would love you permission to use this and of coarse we would give credit.

If you don't have the plan to work on this map and expand the city, than you're allowed to use this map (with credit to me :))

I temporally stopped with building new buildings because I'm stuck with ground level differences.
Till now I build the whole map flat while Manhattan isn't flat at all. This creates some improvisation of building some buildings with different ground levels, and that is not cool.
For a long time, I don't know how I have to get along with this problem. Now I'm finally started with changing the ground levels and street what causes a lot of work! But I have to do it to get further with building Midtown Manhattan.
