Hard to believe the photo above was taken just 5 years ago. On one of our very first rides by founder and CEO, Patrick Day.
So much has changed since then. New York City is a place that is always evolving, with new groundbreaking architecture projects going up faster than you can say #shoeselfie! That’s what makes us so excited about not just how far we’ve come, but where we will continue to go.
Well you know what they say, in order to truly appreciate where we are, we have to remember where we’ve been. So let’s take a look back at the city that inspired us to soar to new heights.

As one of the greatest cities in the world, the big apple has always been most known for it’s breathtaking Manhattan skyline view. In 2013, that view was graced with 3 new additions:

Let freedom ring! 2014 marked the completion of One World Trade Center aka the Freedom Tower. Standing at 1,776 feet with 94 floors, it now officially holds the title for tallest building in NYC! Construction started on 2006 and after 8 long years it is finally done. Other notable additions include:

In 2015, the tallest residential skyscraper in the world was born. 432 Park Avenue was completed in 2015 and stands at 1396 ft with 85 floors, beating out the beloved Empire State building to secure it’s spot as the second tallest building in New York City! Other completed projects include:

And we’re back! 2017 just started and if you think NYC has reached it’s peak in creativity, think again! A project, appropriately named “The Big Bend”, has been stirring up quite the buzz lately with it’s revolutionary idea to create “the world’s longest skyscraper.” If approved, architecture firm Oiio believes this project will become one of the “most prestigious buildings in Manhattan.” So cheers to a view that just keeps getting better and better!
