Publisher's description: A vertical celebration of New York, this book offers magnificent views of the city's tall buildings as well as city streets, lush parks, and opulent penthouse gardens. This book takes a bird's-eye view of New York City -- and the results are nothing less than extraordinary. Managing to obtain access, often exclusive, to over 60 rooftops throughout Manhattan, Dirk Stichweh and Jorg Machirus photographed the incredible views afforded them from these heights. This book presents 200 full-color illustrations of New York City's vistas from the top in a vertically oversized format. From Wall Street to uptown, these photographs capture uniquly beautiful views: a biplane on the roof of 77 Water Street; dawn over the Upper Bay of Governors Island; sunset reflected off the windows of the Freedom Tower; the top of the Pershing Viaduct; cabs lined up like matchbox cars on Seventh Avenue; and the enormous billboards that illuminate Times Square -- all from an angle few ever see.
