Skyscrapers in the Background


When envisioning New York City, skyscrapers are typically the main focal point of the image; they are the foreground surrounded by an abundance of hardscape. But when standing on the roof of this upper west side building, you get a very different perspective of the city. Looking out at the city, in the heart of Manhattan, it’s a sea of green! The trees are lush and seem to go on forever… with skyscrapers in the background, taking a back seat to nature.


Another gem you get from this roof is, what feels like, a backstage view of the Museum of Natural History surrounded by greenery.
