Looking Down on New York City With Urban Explorer and Photographer "Flashing Lights"

17-year-old urban Explorer, photographer, and Instagrammer flashing.lights has been exploring the City for most of his life, always finding new vantage points to capture amazing photographs of the City from above.

Avid readers of Viewing NYC might recognize some of these photos as we have shared a couple in the past, but the popular Instagrammer recently uploaded a great collection of his favorite aerial shots and we had to share them with you.

For years I have looked up at the beautiful buildings of the city and I had a strong desire to see the views the buildings held. Over the past year I embarked on a mission to take pictures from some of the rarest, priciest, and stunning views of New York City. These photos were a result of countless hours of networking with building managers, tenants, residents, and anyone else who could help me see the unseen. All shots were taken legally.

Check out @flashing.lights for daily photos of incredible New York City aerial views and street life.
