Updated: 19 January 2018

There’s so much to see on the streets of New York City that we don’t often think to look down. Luckily, photographer Jeffrey Milstein did and shared his discoveries with those of us guilty of only ever looking down at our phones. See New York from a new perspective from January 25 through March 17, 2018, at Milstein’s Leaning Out solo show at Benrubi Gallery or in his new book, LA NY, published by Thames and Hudson.

Determining how vehicles navigate the cluttered Coney Island Subway Yard could be its own carnival challenge.

Terminal B at Newark Liberty International Airport

Technically located in New Jersey, this bird’s-eye view of Newark Liberty International Airport reminds us that with a home as stunning as New York City, one never needs to leave.
