DO: Death From Above

Published on: February 12th, 2010 Written by:

NYC is a city full of angles. You got your ground level view, your below ground level views, and then there’s something I personally played not a lot of attention to until my man Eric got prolific about it – the way-the-fuck-above ground views.

There’s something really nice about being in the open air way over NYC. I’ve worked in dozens of high rises all around the city over the years, but rarely bothered to look for rooftop access.  I didn’t quite realize what I was missing. Aside from the nice views it’s really, really fucking quiet when you’re this high up… It’s quite the oasis compared to the insanity all around you.

Look for more of this stuff in the future… and look into gaining access to your own favorite high rise rooftop. It’s totally worth the effort, and the risks of illegality are practically zero.
