Love it or hate it, you have to admit that New York City is home to some of the world’s most impressive and diverse architecture. Pick a style from the last 200 years, and you’re bound to find a fantastic example somewhere in Gotham. Now, you can find them all on one reasonably priced poster.

Splendid Structures of New York City” is exactly what it sounds like: a catalog of the Big Apple’s best buildings. From the stunning TWA Flight Center at JFK to the art deco Brooklyn Museum to the impossibly tall and skinny (and expensive ) 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan, each of these buildings shows off a uniquely New York state of being. And the blueprint-style renderings make it easy to separate the form from the function.

You can buy a signed and number print from Pop Chart Lab for just $30. While you’re at it, you might also want the poster’s sibling prints “The Schematic of Structures”—which is basically a poster of man’s greatest erections —and “The Wonderous Water Towers of New York City ”—you can guess what that one’s about.

Wow. Apparently NYC’s best buildings are solely in the X and Y plane. I’d buy this poster if I loved boxes, or their equivalent 3d renders—cubes. Otherwise, well, nice collection, but it may only serve to notice that NYC buildings are boring as fuck.

And yes I know some of these buildings are actually interesting from the Y axis, but sure couldn’t tell from these depictions.
