These are the most amazing aerial photos of New York ever, period

It's always exciting to receive a message from a master like Vincent Laforet telling you about his new photos. This time he has outdone himself (once again!) so I had to share it right away. Never in my life I've seen New York from this perspective and with this stunning quality—so perfect it feels unreal. » 1/10/15 7:52pm 1/10/15 7:52pm

Video: New York at night beautifully recreated with 3,454 oil paintings

I've had this night in New York before. Actually, anyone who has lived there has had this night. And though you might not immediately recognize it, you will. That's because the art in this video is lifted straight from those nights you don't exactly remember but you know were awesome. Basically, New York on any given… » 11/14/14 1:17am 11/14/14 1:17am

Photo of New York City before and after cleaning shows how filthy it is

New York is a monumental, awe-inspiring city. Much of its gritty cinematographic character comes from her heavy makeup, layers upon layers of pollution deposited for decades in every nook and crack. Trevor Little's photo of two guys powerwashing a building clearly shows this beautiful old whore's true skin. » 11/10/14 1:48pm 11/10/14 1:48pm

Sitting on top of the world never looked so good... and terrifying

She may look like the Black Widow sitting atop the Chrysler Building in a scene from Avengers, but she is the fearless Lucinda Grange, a British photographer specialized in sports, portraiture, architecture, travel, and adventure. In her spare time she loves to climb tall structures and explore abandoned buildings, » 2/18/14 11:55pm 2/18/14 11:55pm

New York looks gorgeous in the snow—for five minutes, in Central Park

Beautiful image of virgin snow covering Central Park just taken by New York Habitat. New York is truly beautiful covered in snow—until you have to go to the office and have to deal with the sludge of pollution mud and frozen slush that piles up in every single corner. In the words of Erin Gloria Ryan: » 2/18/14 10:27am 2/18/14 10:27am

I can't believe this is a photo of Central Park

This is Manhattan's Central Park as seen by Sergei Semenov. Taken earlier this year, this incredible scene is actually a straightened panorama, stitched from multiple photographs taken from a helicopter. There's an interactive version, but this perspective—exaggerated by the straightening process—is more impressive… » 12/19/13 12:33pm 12/19/13 12:33pm

See How Much New York Has Changed (Or Not) Since The 1990s

Everybody loves vintage street photography, especially when it's from New York City. Every decade has its distinctive taste; I personally love the Seventies. But what about the Nineties? Oh dear, those years! Only twenty something years ago! But can you remember what was it like on the streets of New York City? » 12/17/13 1:45pm 12/17/13 1:45pm

This incredible bat-cave is 200 feet under Central Park

It took more than four decades to complete, but New York City Water Tunnel No. 3 is finally fully armed and operational. It's an impressive engineering work that will quench the thirst of millions of New Yorkers and serve as the future lair of Lex Luthor, Michael Bloomberg's next identity after leaving City Hall. » 10/17/13 12:09am 10/17/13 12:09am
