Water towers are a distinctive part of the New York City skyline. This is one I can see from my window. Many new buildings now are trying to hide them behind facades, but I like the way they look. Here is a paragraph about water towers from the "how stuff works" website:
In a city, tall buildings often need to solve their own water pressure problems. Because the buildings are so tall, they often exceed the height that the city's water pressure can handle. So a tall building will have its own pumps and its own water towers.
Enjoy your weekend and see you Monday!
