Visionary City

Future City > Skyscraper World

Uh, huh. The sort of vision brought on by too much champagne and lobster before retiring.

Whatever the faults of Just Imagine's version of New York, it was far better than this prediction from 1908. It's like living in a weird combination of an Arab sukh and the Grand Canyon with Piccadilly Circus stuck out on a bridge for good measure. Also, take a look at the copy of the Bridge of Sighs in the distance -- the one that's about the size of the Houses of Parliament.

The really frightening thing is that you have no idea of how high you are in this picture. Is that the ground level in the distance, or does it just go on and on down like my expectations of television programming?
