Eagle Eye Views Of NYC


This imposing aerial photo of the Empire State Building is part of a collection of pictures taken high above the city earlier this month. A larger collection that includes less recent pics can be found here but I've included a few of my faves AFTER THE JUMP.

  1. In the midst of a week here with 5 other friends and we are having a BLAST. I will miss New York so much when we're gone.

  2. OK, the second to last one is Columbus Circle, right? I feel so old and out of touch—I grew up two miles northwest of there and a million years ago.

  3. At least a million years ago, david r.

    Now I know what godzilla feels like. Why not smash it?

  4. my boyfriend is nagging me to have a trip to NY for his 30th, he must never see these photos! on the other hand i am now tempted myself - he can go shopping whilst i go building spotting - by the way can anyone recommend a good portable guide to the historic buildings of NY ?

  5. Nice photos, BUT...I don't think quite as nice as the Bob Cameron photos.

    I used to live in New York and my favorite guide is Michelin's Guide to New York City. I noticed that they have a 2010 edition available. My old edition has great great maps, floorplans of museums etc. I assume they still offer those wonderful features.

    Thanks very much for the tip about the guide, I will look out the Michelin guide before I leave London or pick one up in NY when we arrive, afterwards I will drop off the boyfriend for shopping and head off to do some serious skyscrapper spotting...

  8. These are gorgeous pictures. They make the "concrete jungle" look beautiful.

    But nothing is as gorgeous as the Downtown Los Angeles skyline backdropped by snow-capped San Gabriel mountains.

  9. Arch- the AIA used to (and possibly still does) publish a guide to the buildings of NYC. Maybe you can find one on Amazon or ebay if they're not in print anymore-
