An Art Print by Pop Chart Lab Featuring Many of the Wondrous Water Towers Found in New York City

The Wondrous Water Towers of New York City
(larger)

The Wondrous Water Towers of New York City” is an art print by Pop Chart Lab featuring a “curated selection of New York City’s best rooftop darlings.” Signed and numbered prints are available to purchase online.

This visual compendium arrays a curated selection of the city skyline’s unsung signatures: its wondrous water towers. From the rainbow-tiled tower in DUMBO to the twin-tank setup in Midtown East to the lime-tinged filtration-point in Richmond Hill, Queens, over two dozen industrial artifacts have been richly hand-illustrated here, highlighting the heterogeneity of these high-rising hydro-structures. (Fun fact: Though many of these towers may look like antiques, this time-tested technology has yet to be topped, and still provides precious H20 to most buildings in the city six stories or taller.)
