The Wondrous Water Towers of New York City
A roundup of NYC's rooftop darlings, this visual compendium arrays a curated selection of the city skyline's unsung signatures: its wondrous water towers. From the rainbow-tiled tower in DUMBO to the twin-tank setup in Midtown East to the lime-tinged filtration-point in Richmond Hill, Queens, over two dozen industrial artifacts have been richly hand-illustrated here, highlighting the heterogeneity of these high-rising hydro-structures. (Fun fact: Though many of these towers may look like antiques, this time-tested technology has yet to be topped, and still provides precious H20 to most buildings in the city six stories or taller.)
