New York City. Jacob Javits Conference Center

We are looking at Hudson skyscrapers of New York, from the roof of the Jacob Yavits Conference Center. Built in 1986, on Eleventh Avenue, the center has recently been completely rebuilt and expanded. As you can see, it has a “green” roof. This roof was constantly leaking the first year after reconstruction.

The total area of the Congress Center is about 170,000 square meters. New York Coliseum used to be the main attraction of the city. The Center, named after one of the senators of the United States, hosts major exhibitions, such as the New York International Auto Show and the New York Comic Con.

The construction and subsequent reconstruction of the center were accompanied by scandals and difficulties. As a result, its cost overruns were between 25 to 50 million US dollars. The center is going to be expanded. Construction work will cost $1.5 billion.

The camera faces the new skyscrapers, the North Tower (30 Hudson Yards) and the South Tower (10 Hudson Yards). They were built in the 10s of the 21st century. The architecture of these new attractions of New York is worth looking at. For example, the North Tower is made in the form of a rectangular pyramid.
