Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

New York Is… Glass

06-19 GlassThough nostalgists often bemoan the lack of brick and marble in modern architecture, there is something to be said for the magic that is glass. Whether used to make a bottle, a mirror, a light fixture, or a New York City skyscraper, glass is a durable, flexible, colorful, and luminous material that works wonders on the human eye. Though new developments usually call for glass for economic reasons, the aesthetics speak for themselves when a glass building reflects the sky around it or plays with the light that shines through it. Whether stained or clear, crystal or lead, a window or a goblet, indoors or outdoors, glass reflects New York like nothing else. And it likely will for years to come.
