Initial layout of the bar design
skyline is legendary for its
skyscrapers, architecture and the water towers on nearly every building over
six stories tall. The water towers started to appear in New York City in the 1800’s as a way to bring
water to upper floors in taller buildings. Often the redwood tanks were built
and installed by whiskey barrel makers during that time. Each tank was held
together with only steel straps with no adhesive to keep the contents pure.
Each tank has a life span of approximately 40 years. These timeless structures
are a signature of New York City New York just like Central Park.
