New York Ruins by JonasDeRo New York Ruins by JonasDeRo
Yes it happened, a ruins matte painting of NY.

I chose not to put in any famous buildings since that's been done many times. (sorry Shreeve, Lamb and Harmon :p)
I took the plate of this pic on the roof of the POD hotel somewhere around 55th.

I know nothing about engineering and architecture, but wouldn't that part of the tallest skyscraper (the one in what I think can be considered midground) have fallen a long time ago? Or is only that corner of the building missing?

Hi, I was wondering if I could use this image in a video i'm working on? it would be a setting image for a music video in a post apocalyptic time. It would be perfect for it!

You know for some reason, viewing ruins of cities always seem interesting for me to look at, even if it were my sweet home Chicago, although I've been to New York a couple years ago.

I'm a sucker for a post-apocalyptic scene, especially done this fantastically.

Really like the bit of warm sun rising over this desolate cityscape.

And you're right. Such structures are viewed as iconic, a staple of the grandeur and power of New York City. Unfortunately, whatever is in the background is forgotten.
