As New York City’s de facto economic capital, Manhattan is home to more office and apartment buildings than any other borough. 228 high-rises are located in New York City, 98 of which rise higher than 600 feet. Of course, the staggering height of Manhattan’s skyscrapers necessitates numerous escalators, elevators, and staircases, assisting employees, visitors, and residents alike in changing floors.
