NYC's Water Towers
One of the biggest landmarks of NYC, believe it or not, is its 10,000 water towers
. Any building over 6 stories needs a water tower to ensure water pressure to every floor because of the city's weak gravity-driven water supply.
These towers are 10 feet high and 10 feet wide and are made out of wood because it resists temperature change and corrosion. Approximately 100 of them are replaced/rebuilt every year.
I spotted them the first day and "collected" them the rest of the week! I fell in love with them. And guess what, I just watched the new Spiderman movie over the weekend and saw them with fond recognition! :)
