Since I have now been looking down at my neighbors for a year, I thought I would repost this. 😉
If you have ever spent a significant amount of time in a large metropolis, you will know that there are at least three major ways to view a city: at street level; from a distance (think skyline); and from above. While each of these vantage points have their charms, for many urbanites, a high perch from which to observe life below qualifies as a guilty pleasure.
I have lived in several Brooklyn neighborhoods, in apartments steadily rising: first at ground level; then a few floors up; later on the eleventh floor and now to an even higher floor. I relish the view, which encompasses a wide variety of neighborhoods and landmarks. I also appreciate the distance from the din of traffic and commerce, and the ability to see weather systems approaching and the setting sun.
Now I will share some shots with you, see if they bring you pleasure!
