Synopses & Reviews
Manhattan arguably had the most breathtaking skyline arguably ever created. Even without the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the glorious art-deco chic of the Chrysler Building and the bold reach of the Empire State Building persist in identifying the city immediately as the capital of the world.
