New York City - Night - Times Square from Above

At night, 

while we soar

through the streets,

flying past buildings,

navigating through

alleys below,

the city soars

along with us,

its neon lights

pulsating to 

the night’s 

heartbeat,

streets winding

like synapses

as we 

dance in

each other’s

dreamscapes,

This is a 2.5 second long exposure taken with my Sony A7R while I was high above Times Square at midnight one night. Truly a breathtaking view.

New York City at Night - Lower East Side 

—-

Street lights shine

brightly

under a blanket of

darkness,

as the mist

from the fog

of millions of thoughts

exhales

at once

into a sky

heavy with dreams.

New York City - Night - Times Square from Above - Millennium Broadway Hotel

—-

I had the pleasure of staying overnight and taking photos at the Millennium Broadway Hotel located above Times Square last week. While I grew up here in New York City and live in New York City, I definitely don’t find myself overlooking Times Square very often.

I live in a tiny walk-up on the Lower East Side which is pretty far removed from the neon and spectacle of Times Square. I grew up with an imagination fueled by the neon sci-fi cityscapes in films like Blade-Runner (one of my favorites). I would go to sleep dreaming about Shanghai or Toyko through a Blade-Runner tinted lens.

It’s easy to forget that New York City has its own cinematic sci-fi-esque cityscapes especially when you only ever experience places like Times Square from ground level. Having such an amazing perspective of Times Square from 50 floors above was pretty intense while taking long exposures.

Photo-set:

1 - Times Square at night from above. I was obsessed with this view. The top floor rooms of the hotel have this view in common on one side of the hotel. In love.

2 - The rooms are pretty spacious for the Times Square area considering that the hotel is literally right in the middle of Times Square. Many of the the hotels in the area tend to have super small rooms.

3 - A late afternoon view overlooking Times Square from the room.

4 - This is a view of the Lyceum Theatre, New York City’s oldest theatre along with Times Square from above. There are a lot of interesting views in New York City of various landmarks but this was an entirely new view for me. I stayed awake pretty late just watching the lights flicker and the hustle and bustle of crowds through my camera lenses.

5 - A view of the gorgeous original ceiling of the Hudson Theatre. As I mentioned above, the theatre is attached to the Millennium Hotel and the hotel manages it. It was built in 1903. The original owner perished on the Titanic. .

6 - The Hudson Theatre’s stage. While it is currently used for special events, conferences,and weddings, it also has been the site of Comedy Central’s stand-up comedy shows

7 - This is a view from a room in The Premier Hotel which is managed by the Millennium Hotel as well and is attached to Millennium Broadway.

8 - And finally, another long exposure taken late at night above New York City in Times Square from my hotel room.

Paris - Cityscape and Eiffel Tower from Above

The streets

were lit up

with stardust

flowing 

through

the city

igniting

tales and stories

in the wake

of the 

splendor:

And all 

of the embers

led 

straight

to you.

This is a 6 second long exposure taken with the Sony a7R that I took while on the top of Tour Montparnasse the first night I was in Paris. In retrospect, it was the perfect time to experience a view like this before I got to explore the city. It was a beautiful night and one I won’t forget.
