Earth History. Photos of Abandoned Places and Urban Exploration. What's Hiding Beneath New York City Is Amazingly Creepy. Posted in New York February 04, 2016 by Lea Monroe Full of historical secrets and wonder, the ground you’re walking on in New York may hold more mystery to it than you would ever imagine! Hiding over ten stories beneath the streets of the city and the world-renowned Waldorf Astoria luxury hotel, lies a secret subway platform that will have everyone wishing these walls could talk. Like something out of your favorite book, at the turn of a brass knob behind a secret door on 49th Street, awaits Track 61.

This private railway owned by Metro-North is located underneath the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Historical Globes of the Red Planet. FUTURE MAP OF THE UNITED STATES AND WORLD. Religious Architecture, Temples and Floor Plans. Paridon City Map. A Sprawling Videogame City Filled With Buildings Made by Generative Algorithms. Game designer Cedric Kerr developed an architectural engine that allows for the rapid creation of buildings to fill out virtual landscapes. Cedric Kerr Kerr only needs to draw an outline of a building and then can stretch it in any dimension while an algorithm populates the form with doors, windows, and other architectural details. All the buildings feature strong right angles which is partly a desire for an oppressive, Brutalist architectural vibe and partially a limit of Kerr's algorithm.

Kerr hopes to explore other architectural styles as time permits. In addition to creating unique building, Kerr developed an engine that would automatically populate a landmass with a sprawling city. Dynamically generated elevations are the newest addition to the landscape and could influence gameplay in interesting ways—e.g. missions that require escaping to a mountain hideaway. His goal was to create logical, but not predictable, levels like those found in procedurally generated 2-D games.
