LIFE magazine photographer Andreas Feininger snapped this amazing aerial photograph of Midtown Manhattan in July of 1944. This shot amongst countless other, contributed to Feininger's portfolio of famous New York City photographs, most of which live in museum galleries around the world. His shots rarely included people, but rather featured buildings, science and nature, bones and plants.
