How New York Got Its Skyline

Bloomberg · 523,070 views
Why do so many of New York's older skyscrapers have a similar design?

The answer can be traced back to a monumental 1916 zoning law, which established “setback” requirements for buildings above a certain height. In the heart of the Financial District, the Equitable Building, a historic skyscraper that predates the law, remains a symbol of the excesses of the pre-zoning era.
