Welcome to the main submission of this Project, if you have any questions or ideas, just let me know.

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.
undefined
Woolworth Building.
undefined
Bownling Green Park & Broadway.
undefined
Wall Street & Trinity Church.
undefined
West Street & The Downtown Skyline.
undefined A Landbook overlay.

Creator you dont know how work copyright and fair use
It's allowed to use the OLD MAP as a server map or what ever you want to do with (with some exceptions, as seen in the next paragraph!), e.g. for youtube videos, showcases & blogposts, if you give CREDIT.

Fair use is a doctrine in the law of the United States that permits limited use of copyrighted material without having to first acquire permission from the copyright holder. Fair use is one of the limitations to copyright intended to balance the interests of copyright holders with the public interest in the wider distribution and use of creative works by allowing as a defense to copyright infringement claims certain limited uses that might otherwise be considered infringement.[​1] Like "fair dealing" rights that exist in most countries with a British legal history, the fair use right is a general exception that applies all different kinds of uses with all types of works and turns on a flexible proportionality test that examines the purpose of the use, the amount used, and the impact of the market on the original work. The innovation of the fair use right in US law is that it applies to a list of purposes that is preceded by the opening clause "such as." This has allowed courts to apply it to technologies never envisioned in the original statute including Internet search, the VCR, and the reverse engineering of software.

Minecraft Commercial Usage Guidelines




The Minecraft EULA and Brand and Asset Usage Guidelines ("Policies") restrict the commercial use of the Minecraft Name, Brand, and Assets, including software, graphics and audio.

However, since we do love the idea of players and fans doing cool things and sharing them with the community, and we realize that sometimes you need to charge to cover your costs, the following explains what we (currently) consider to be commercial use / commercial things. This may change as time goes by but for now we hope that it helps you understand what you can and can’t do, and helps Minecraft fans do more (and limit those that try to go too far).

We have therefore drafted these Guidelines to allow some leniency with respect to limited commercial activity as outlined below. They don't form part of the Policies but they exist because we currently think it is a good idea to let some of these things happen. Please note that we reserve the right to change our mind at any time (such as if people start to take advantage of our good intentions) and to update these Guidelines. So please don't count on these Guidelines always being here or in the specific form they are right now.

We also want to make it clear that these Guidelines are for the community of Minecraft players and fans. They do not authorize commercial companies, corporate brands, advertising agencies, non-profits, or governments to use or exploit Minecraft for promoting products or services unrelated to Minecraft. See below for more detail in the section, “Building Promotions into Minecraft.”

Awesome! Another diamond for you. May I use this as a base city on a small noncommercial multiplayer server? I want to surround the city with countryside in a larger map, so people can choose survival in the country or city, travel and trade with each other, etc. I would give full credit and links.

Dude, the Manhattan Project had nothing to do with recreating new york. It was founded as a program to build the world's first detonated nuclear bombs during world war II, people like most notably, Albert Einstein was part of the project. It was ended after US bombed japan and when the war was over. Still, really enjoyed it! Keep up the good work!!!

No, its the other way. I know the author of the 2001 project. We often worked together and I gave him my street layout and buildings, because he had some difficulties with the angles and elevation of the streets. Thats why many buildings and the streets are the same.

Quick question about your city. I've been meaning to ask this ever since I downloaded it. How did you figure out the sides and backs of the buildings and how they look? Did you have to guess? I'm talking about the little 2 and 3 story buildings.

There are many pictures of the backyards in the digital collections of the library of NYC and others. But if they had not any pictures, I had to find a skyline photo to see the back sides. And if I could not find one - I had to guess.
