Pardon my ignorance. I'm not sure why some posting have a field to reply to and others have small type at the bottom that says: "This document is provided for on-line viewing only." Peer_81's posting from 2 days ago was explicitly asking for advice, so I will create a new posting here.

Yo don't seem to be requesting a style or period... just general New York architecture... the famous will be easy. Yo can get to Empire State, Time Square, UN Building, Columbus Circle... that will all be covered on a typical tourist brochure.

Here are three recent projects that are noteworthy:

Austrian Cultural Institute, 11 East 52nd Street, by Raimund Abraham
LVMH Tower, 21 East 57th Street, by Christian de Portzamparc
Prada Store, 575 Broadway, by Rem Koolhaas

I would also suggest investing in a book called AIA Guide to New York City. It's a dictionary like directory of just about every building in the city put together by the American Institute of Architects. You can get it on

Goto and be sure to check out the forum page. People will be discussing local architecture, primarily new skyscraper construction, pretty much an all locals forum.

Goto and have a look at New York City.
