    Nice work Tim.  I really like the blue and brown building, the signs and shops at the bottom really add a lot.


    I do think you could do a bit better job of breaking up the grey and black textures though, but that's a small thing really.

    Really nice. Great architecture. The colours are quite bright for a NY theme, but you made them work well here. My only real complaint are the trees. I can't really see what's going on there, but besides that, those objects are ugly and feel really out of place in this cityscape.

    I love that tan building, it's so detailed and yet so clean. Great work.

    Awesome to see you've added some context to this design! Great archy, would like to see something done with the pathwork though - maybe making it into roads?

    I'm not sure how NY this looks. It looks great, really fun, but not very NY. 


    Maybe a sidewalk would do wonders in a lighter colour than the road.

    Too clean looking to be NYC

    Great architecture. I love the mixed textures on that light blue building.

    This really encapsulates when places try to make their area "NYC" themed and it makes me want to die. I love it!

    To all the "not real New York" haters: each of these buildings was based on a real building that i frequented during my 4 years there. Granted, they're all in Brooklyn, so calling it a Brooklyn theme may have been more accurate, but we don't have a Brooklyn tag that I'm aware of.


    @Stoksy, roadlines and sidewalks may have made it look nice within this particular screen, but I think it would have competed too much with some other stuff on the map, so leaving it clear made more sense.


    @Sulakke, I placed the trees before the buildings and never bothered to change them once the theme settled in. Maybe they'll make more sense in context.

    I can see this being Brooklyn (lived there almost 10 years). I really like the more gritty feel to the buildings. The only thing I can think of is maybe the blue building could be a different shade/ texture? I'm bad at this stuff so I don't know lol. I would love to see this as a theme park setting though, it's so different.

    I think what it needs is alleyways between buildings, they're all kinds forming a big block which isn't necessarily inaccurate but perhaps gaps might make it more interesting.

    I'm quite excited for this design!

    This is good stuff! The awnings and 'on the town' cantilever is a great representation
