My love for this city is always magnified when I view it from above. If you are a New Yorker, you understand that fluttery, emotional, first-glimpse-of-the-skyline feeling that arises when crossing over a bridge or descending near the airport.
Sometimes this city drives me nuts, but it's also undeniably astounding, and I'm glad to be reminded of that every so often.
P.S. View from: The Empire State Building (at Sunset); Top of the Rock; Hudson River and Brooklyn Bridge Park.
