Ringworld Manhattan

Several people sent this one to me:

Here & There is a map of Manhattan looking uptown from 3rd and 7th, and downtown from 3rd and 35th. It puts the viewer simultaneously above the city and in it where she stands, both looking down and looking forward.

Of course, science fiction fans immediately think of Arthur C. Clarke's Rendezvous with Rama:

and Larry Niven's Ringworld:

Television's Babylon 5 also took place inside a circular space station:

and video game fans can't help but think of Halo (a blatant rip-off of Ringworld):
