1920-2001

The time period between 1920 and 2001 was one of sweeping cultural and physical changes in the New York Skyline, specifically as seen from Brooklyn Heights. Individuals enacted a large majority of these changes, which were often the products of large-scale economic movement that affected the skyline. More and more, the construction of the skyline was in the hands of single powerful individuals, and it became seen as one composite whole, worthy of artistic representation.
