No matter how familiar, the landscape in central Manhattan, with the Empire State-owned building, still stirred imagination.
Some of the city’s architectural landscapes include ungainly skyscrapers. For example, the Pudong area. This area is the east coast of Shanghai across the Huangpu River from New Classical and Art Deco Bund, the city’s most famous street. An SEZ since 1993, Pudong has been growing extremely fast.
