Thread: Chrysler & Empire State Building in one shot

    Default Chrysler & Empire State Building in one shot

    I have seen this photos of Chrysler and the Empire State Building tops in one photo. I just don't know where it is taken from. I come to New York City often to take photos, but have not found yet the spot to take this photo. It might be from a Hotel, or a Building rooftop I think somewhere from either Turtle Bay or Upper East Side. Does anybody know where a view like this is possible? I am thankfull for any suggestions.

    Roosevelt Island or the 59th Street bridge/tram are the only public spots I can think of. Many buildings on the east side have a better view such as Trump World Tower.

    I think Derek3K3 is right...
    If you want a shot like this one,
    your gonna have to find someone
    who lives or works up high on the East side.
    Or maybe take a ride on one of those helicopter adventures?

    Thanks for the suggestions. I should be higher up then street level, which is public. So I need to find somebody out there with this great view, that lets me into his place to take the shot. Or a doorman that lets me to the roof for a little tip maybe.
