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!

3 Park Avenue : 11/19/2017 6:32:38 am11/19/17

3 Park Avenue rises above the streets!

Macy's! : 11/13/2017 4:23:44 pm11/13/17

Macy's!

Macy’s is coming soon! : 11/06/2017 12:51:13 pm11/06/17

Need to go shopping for the holiday’s?
Macy’s is opening soon in Midtown Manhattan!

The outside walls are finished and I’m busy with the roof right now. Pictures are comming soon :)

Just keep building... : 10/28/2017 12:37:43 pm10/28/17

After a year of silence the building continues!

More apartments on the East : 05/05/2017 8:04:09 am5/05/17

More apartments rise on the East :)

East is getting shape : 11/13/2016 7:23:34 am11/13/16

The east of Midtown Manhattan is getting more and more shape!

Version 2.0 online! : 10/15/2016 5:28:08 pm10/15/16

Finally version 2.0 is online!
This update includes a lot of difference in de streets of Midtown New York City.
First the whole map was flat but now it there are different heights in de streets accurate to real life!

Enjoy this update and download now!

Ground level update : 09/27/2016 5:28:25 pm9/27/16

Nearly 30-35% of the total map is fixed. The ground levels are relative to reality and the map is more real!

Changing the altitude/ground levels of the map : 09/15/2016 7:28:36 am9/15/16

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.

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

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!

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.

Thank you! I don't know what you and your friend want to do with this map exactly but I'm still working on this map :)
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 wish I was as patient as you. I've attempted to make a 1/10 scale of midtown, but I got tired of looking back and forth between minecraft and google maps to make it look at accurate as possible. Usually when I start on a huge project like that, I quit too easily.

Hi there! This is very realistic! It was like I'm in real life. But, can I take the Bank of America Tower? I'll credit you don't worry. Please. That is something I don't know how to build cause I don't memorize the curves. Please :(
I don't know WHAT happened, but whenever I download it, it comes out as just a video file. And when I try to transfer it from the RAR folder, it comes up with 78 errors and goes as a WordPad file. Help plz!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing. Absolutely Amazing.

I can't download the map because I don't have a certain program to unzip the download. Can you please create a file tha I can download without any special programs? This map looks really awesome and I would really like to download it.

Very well done sir! You've accomplished what many say, "One day I will do..." But, if you keep it up, you can one day say, "One day I did..."

I love how well detailed it looks like, (at a distance of course), and you still find time to furnish some buildings eh? Haha, good luck with the rest of your work friend!
