Skyline from the Hilton – New York, New York

My high school buddy, who stayed at the Hilton, invited us to his room for a spectacular view — this is looking east. I love the variety of architectural styles and the mix of colors. I’m glad the designers have moved on from the boring glass rectangles which dominated the past.

Looking northeast, I snapped these super tall and skinny structures. Some are part of what is called Billionaire’s Row. Located south of Central Park, they feature astronomically pricy condos in these impossibly narrow designs.

I used Fujifilm’s Classic Negative film style to create this steely-grey aesthetic. I think it emphasizes the power and business-like nature of Manhattan.
