Why are the buildings tall in New York City?
The buildings are tall in New York City because New York is a dense, or highly populated area. Think of it this way: If all the buildings in New York were short, not as many people could live and work there. In addition, there are two reasons why Manhattan island has so many skyscrapers. Land is so expensive, it pays to buy a smaller piece of property and put up a really tall building.. And the critical point is that skyscrapers must have their foundations in solid rock, and that's just what Manhattan island is made of.
