The first thing that any visitor to New York city will do when they arrive is look up.
New York city is built in a grid patter. Except for what seems from a maps perspective, one street. So while walking around you will get random happenings where the normal 90 degree turn gets chopped in half. So, instead of changing the street back in the day. (which I know wasn’t possible) they decided to just build triangle building.
The most famous of these types of intersections is the one and only Time Square. Where broadway street slices its way through the city.
This photo is taken on the south downtown of the island near wall street.
