Each track on Cityscapes reflects on a different time, space, or story in New York's history. Ranging from the first track "Mannahatta" to the last track "Rebuild", Cityscapes is a journey from New York's prehistoric roots to its imagined future. The project is directed by composer Will Healy, who also composed the majority of the tracks on the album.
