Coney Island

Earlier this month, photographer Maison Gray took to the top skyscrapers in Manhattan to capture the joys of summer in the city. Shooting some of the most iconic parks and beaches from above, Gray risked his life to get these never-before-seen shots. He has previously documented the coasts of Europe, Australia, South America, and last summer he even shot the Hamptons beaches from above (in a door-less helicopter!). Check out his latest work of NYC summer photos from above.
