A stunning aerial view of New York, taken from two miles in the air over Staten Island, 1922 #NYC

This is an amazing photograph looking North across Manhattan and parts of Brooklyn and Queens around 1922. Because the photo was captured from so high up, it is tough to make out specific details in the shot, but if you look closely you can identify some of the more prominent skyscrapers of that era down in the Financial District. Not much is known about the photographer or the process that led to the photo capture, so if you have any information please comment below.
