Pretty Dismal: What The New York City Skyline Would Look Like On The Other Planets Of Our Solar System

This is a series of artistic renderings imagining what the New York City skyline would look like if it existed in the atmospheres of the other planets in our solar system. I put them in order from closest to furthest from the sun, but in case you forgot, that's:

MERCURY, VENUS, EARTH, MARS, JUPITER, SATURN, URANUS, NEPTUNE

It's easy to remember because the first letter of each planet forms the word MVEMJSUN, and SUN is the name of our star and MVEMJ is...I don't know what the hell MVEMJ is. It would make a terrible name for a band though, I can tell you that. Also, I know what you're thinking, and I'm with you -- I think it's time we accept Pluto is no longer a planet and let it go. All this time hoping something would change has been like peeling a Band-Aid off in slow-motion, and we can't keep doing that to ourselves. "I agree, it's time to move on." Why you filthy little traitor! THAT WAS A TEST AND YOU FAILED.
