Le Ciel de New York

I paid the Lady Finger a visit yesterday with the idea to capture “The Sky of New York”. The rooftop of the south elevator tower is the highest point in South Brooklyn and probably gives the best 360-degree view of the big apple. From there, you have a full frontal view of Lady Liberty, the busy NY Harbor, Jersey City, Staten Island, Manhattan, Brooklyn, the bridges and the Empire State in mid-town.

Here is a magnificent description by Albert Camus:
“New York is nothing without its sky. Naked and immense, stretched to the four corners of the horizon, it gives the city its glorious mornings and the grandeur of its evenings, when a flaming sunset sweeps down Eighth Avenue over the immense crowds driving past the shop windows, whose lights are turned on well before nightfall. There are also certain twilights along Riverside Drive, when you watch the parkway that leads uptown, with the Hudson below, its waters reddened by the setting sun; off and on, from the uninterrupted flow of gently, smoothly running cars, from time to time there suddenly rises a song that recalls the sound of breaking waves”.

Here are some additional shots that I took earlier this year in Brooklyn and Queens
