  6. City Plate - New York

    $50.00

    Capital of the U.S. until 1790, New York long ago cemented its reputation as the "Capital of the World." Its huge global influence on finance, trade, politics, and culture has been felt for more than a century, and it is seen around the world as the symbol of the American Dream. It is the most densely populated city on the globe. This fact alone gives New York its absolutely unique urban form. New York was first settled in Lower Manhattan, which accounts for the Old World European layout of downtown (in white). The entire island and parts of Brooklyn are dotted with historic landmarks and civic buildings (in red), including the United Nations building, Grand Central, Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden and the World Trade Center Memorial.

  7. City Plate - Los Angeles

    $50.00

    The Los Angeles plate design, ringed with freeways, shows that what used to be labeled "sprawl," is now being looked at as a model for modern development.  A deep green mass represents Dodger Stadium and Elysian Park; and vivid persimmon icons represent key buildings in the city’s historic core. Los Angeles, with the port of Long Beach, is the largest port in North America, and is vital to trade with Asia and the Pacific Rim. The city, thanks to its youth and love of the automobile, has also developed in a singular way that runs counter to the traditional condensed urban cores of East Coast cities. As cities’ populations grow and cities themselves drift towards each other, the multiple-city-center approach of Los Angeles is becoming more and more familiar.

  9. City Plate - Washington D.C.

    $50.00

    Washington D.C. - Founded in 1790 along the banks of the Potomac, the planned city’s layout was influenced by the Baroque style (the prominent style of the day for planned cities in the U.S.) and drafted by Pierre Charles L’Enfant, a French architect who arrived with Gen. Lafayette during the Revolution.

    The National Mall, rendered in bright green, is expansive, taking up as much space as the main stretch of the Las Vegas Strip. The Potomac River, depicted in blue, bisects the plate and is the border between Washington, D.C. and Virginia. The green areas along the Virginia side of the plate are Rock Creek Park, which is twice the size of Central Park, and the enormous Arlington National Cemetery. The Washington Monument, the Lincoln Memorial, the Capitol, and the White House are represented in persimmon but appear tiny when compared to the mammoth structures seen in Vegas and Dubai. The large Pentagon is unmistakable. Covering nearly 30 acres, it is the only building in the city with a scale that eclipses Vegas’ giant casinos.

  10. City Plate - Seattle

    $50.00

    The most dramatic growth spurt in Seattle’s history occurred during the Klondike Gold Rush of 1897.
