On August 1, 1981 the New York City-based Music Television—or MTV—network
was launched. Suddenly music videos became a major part of the music landscape. In
this Landsat 2 image the built areas of New York appear a blackish-pink, vegetation is
green, and water is black (the Hudson River appears a reddish-black). Central Park is
the long rectangular green shape in the middle of Manhattan.
