Historic neighborhoods, perception-altering architecture and innumerable corridors where old meets new offer a landscape that defies definition. Forget the Burj Khalifa in Dubai or the Petronas Towers in Malaysia; it’s the city that never sleeps that offers breathtaking man-made marvels, and an expansiveness that—in typical New York style—stretches toward the horizons. But—skyline views from New Jersey and Brooklyn and the occasional flyby aside—it can be a backbreaker to take it all in.
That’s where we step in. Still every bit as excited about what’s outside our office windows, we’re not going to let it just sit there. “Views from the Top” is a series of exclusive photographs captured from atop the Big Apple’s greatest inhabitants—the high-reaching buildings and towers that make New York the template for all other cities. Stepping beyond the restricted areas closed to the public, we saw, once again, how amazing this place we call home really is.
