From the top, you'll see the Monopoly-board patchwork of skyscrapers, hotels, apartments, and parks that make up the city. Note that the tallest buildings cluster in Midtown—this section of the island has the strongest foundations, making it the only area where skyscrapers won't sink into the harbour.
