New York City Skyline - Sunset over Midtown- By Vivienne Gucwa
New York City sunsets are songs.
They remind you of all of the times
you ran with open arms
into a city that embraced you back
on the whisper of a breeze
in a skyline reflected in glistening eyes
wide with hope.
carries the promise
of a new song.
This image was taken from the top of Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) during an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The view is of the skyscrapers and rooftops of the midtown Manhattan skyline looking south including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and 1 World Trade Center.

New York City Skyline - Central Park and Skyscrapers from Above- By Vivienne Gucwa When the day stretches out leaving a trail of sighs in its wake, the sky and the infinite slowly implode folding themselves into one another until all that is left is a never-ending horizon reaching out towards the rest of forever. --- This is a view of Central Park and the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan as seen from above. It was taken from the top of the Empire State Building on an impossibly perfect morning. Upper Manhattan sits in the distance with the Chrysler Building and Queens to the right. The trees of Bryant Park are peeking out in the bottom-left part of this image. ---

New York City from Above - Midtown Skyscrapers and Queensboro Bridge- By Vivienne Gucwa This is a view of the entrance to the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, 59th Street Bridge, and Queens Bridge) and the skyscrapers of the New York City skyline in midtown Manhattan close to 59th Street on the east side. The vantage point is from the Roosevelt Island Tram, a tram that crosses from midtown Manhattan to Roosevelt Island a few times an hour which also offers breathtaking views of New York City. ---

Midtown Manhattan Skyscrapers and Streets from Above- By Vivienne Gucwa I have been afraid of heights since I can remember. Even stepping on a tall foot stool would send me into a frenzied panic. It's partially a control issue and partially an irrational fear of the eternal "what if" quandary related to my own mortality. And yet, I have discovered as I get older that there is something supremely thrilling about being high up above things especially being high up above New York City. It's the same scattered sense of adrenaline-fueled excitement I get when I consider the vastness of the ocean. And in some ways, I think both vantage points offer the same sense of displaced wonder. A month or so ago, I watched an absolutely incredible video called Overview which examined something called the Overview Effect. "The Overview Effect is a cognitive shift in awareness reported by some astronauts and cosmonauts during spaceflight, often while viewing the Earth from orbit or from the lunar surface." I can't recommend the video highly enough. It's a 15 minute short film that explores different astronaut's life-altering experiences viewing the earth from above for the first time. The footage of earth from above in the film is overwhelming. It's an emotional journey of a film that definitely has lodged its way into my consciousness. Here it is: http://vimeo.com/55073825 A few years back, when I went to the Top of the Rock, I had such an incredibly visceral reaction when I experienced seeing the city from above. It was rough for me to even take the elevator up 70 floors to the observation deck. I clenched my sweaty fists and closed my eyes the whole time deep breathing probably much to the amusement (or dread) of the fellow elevator passengers. Once I stepped out and onto the upper deck, I was hooked. It was as if I was seeing the city for the first time. Once you take yourself out and away from the streets that surround you, it's as if the city opens up its arms to you. It's fascinating to consider all of the activity and stories that are contained in any one part of such a view. In the short film I linked above, one of the astronauts describes the Overview Effect saying that common features include a feeling of awe for the planet, and a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life among other perspective-shifting feelings. And I really think that anytime we take ourselves high above or deep below the reality we experience every day, it produces different (subtler and perhaps more overwhelming in regards to the ocean) versions of the Overview Effect. Since experiencing that amazing feeling when I pushed past my fear of heights to take myself high above my own every-day reality, I have actively pushed myself to seek out as many high vantage points as I can. This particular image was taken high above the 59th Street Bridge (also known as the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge) entrance overlooking the buildings and skyscrapers that make up the New York City skyline in midtown Manhattan. ---

New York City Skyscrapers and Rooftops from Above- By Vivienne Gucwa This was taken from the top of the Empire State Building on an absolutely gorgeous summer morning with the Sony A77. The light from the sun in the summertime is un-matched in some respects. It seems to take on a distinct golden quality as it shines through the heavy summer air that hangs languidly over the city's rooftops. This particular view is of the tops of the skyscrapers and buildings of midtown Manhattan facing east. ---

New York City Skyline - Skyscrapers of Midtown Manhattan from Above- By Vivienne Gucwa
Late summer light
hangs over the city:
tinged with heavy hope
and hazy promises.
Where the winter brings a crystal sharp clarity to New York City, the summer seems to bring with it a gorgeous, bittersweet gauze-like haze. Summers in New York City cling to the ribs and heart like ethereal remnants of distant thoughts peeking their heads out of the sea of heat and humidity.
This is a view of the roof tops, skyscrapers, water towers and streets of midtown Manhattan as viewed from above.

The New York City Skyline from Above- By Vivienne Gucwa The sun dances slow with the skyscrapers of the New York City skyline in the summer as the clouds kiss the horizon and haze emanates from the collective heat of these intimate encounters. --- I love viewing the New York City skyline in late summer. While the visibility is often limited due to the haze, there is something really exquisite in the way that the foreground skyscrapers appear in this sort of view. This particular view is facing north. On the right side of the image, notable skyscrapers that can be seen are the Chrysler Building and the MetLife building (which stands over Grand Central Terminal). 30 Rock and Rockefeller Center can be seen straight ahead looking out over Central Park and the buildings that line Central Park West. On the left side of the image, a notable skyscraper that can be seen in this view is the Bank of America Tower (with the pointy tip) which stands next to the green MetLife building and overlooks Bryant Park. ---

Sunset Over Central Park and the New York City Skyline- By Vivienne Gucwa When the sun stretches its fingers across the surface of the sky, it holds the city in the palm of its hand. And the sky and the impossible melt away if only for a moment. --- Taken from the Top of the Rock (which is located at the top of 30 Rockefeller Center) looking North over Central Park, the eastern part of Manhattan and the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. ---
