Urban Planet: New York Elevator Views

Urban Planet is a daily roundup of  blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

New York is a city of tall buildings. As a result, some of the best views of the city are captured high above the ground. Photographer Stewart Mader was certainly transfixed by them. He writes, “I started bringing my camera along anytime I knew I would be in a building with elevated views of the city – to business meetings and social events – and at the invitation of people who learn about the project and offer me the opportunity to photograph their vantage points.” The collection entitled Elevator View, which includes the view of the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law pictured above, is well worth looking through.
