Brooklyn-native urban explorer and photographer Victor G. Thomas, aka @vic.invades, possibly most known for scaling 220 Central Park West and hanging off the construction cranes in 2016, shared with us a dizzying time lapse video of the New York City skyline.
In this video, you can see images from high up the Hell Gate Bridge, a popular urban exploration spot, the Manhattan Bridge, in the observation towers looking down at the New York Pavilion in Flushing Meadows, above the Port Authority Bus Terminal, above Flatbush Avenue just off the Brooklyn Bridge off-ramp, with great aerial shots of the Manhattan skyline showcasing 432 Park Avenue, the Empire State Building, and more.
@vic.invades is using the hashtag #LOOKDOWNSEASON and you can follow him on Instagram, where he has 33,000 followers or check out more of his work on his website which also includes his work in urban portraiture, as well as photos from below ground in New York City. We also featured the work of Victor in the book Secret Brooklyn by Untapped Cities co-founders Michelle Young and Augustin Pasquet in an entry about the abandoned subway stations in Brooklyn.
Here are some of @Vic.invades’ rooftopping photos from his website, shared with permission from the photographer:
