[New York]New York: A City Silhouette. (Architecture 2000.)

This program surveys the architecture of New York. Looks at Manhattan's post-modern skyscraper architecture including Cesar Pelli's World Financial Center and Carnegie Hall Tower, Helmut Jahn's City Spire, Minoru Yamasaki's World Trade Center, and the Trump Tower. The proposed renovation of 42nd Street by Robert Stern and the rehabilitation of Times Square are also described. In addition, Helmut Jahn gives his views on New York's architectural rivalry with Chicago and expresses his desire to recapture the spirit of New York's Art Deco days.
