The photographs show an entirely new and unique perspective on such landmarks as Times Square and the Statue of Liberty. Milstein used a high-resolution camera and shot from a helicopter to produce an incredible bird's-eye view of New York. The fearless photographer dangled out of the helicopter with his camera mounted on a gyro stabilizer.

Milstein said in an interview with the Telegraph: "My earliest aerial photographs were taken while flying a rented Cessna 150 around Los Angeles as a teenager."

"I was fascinated by how everything looked from above."

"I was interested in documenting the patterns, layering, and complexity of cities, highlighting airports, container ports, recreational facilities, and residential and commercial developments, all of which grow organically over time and are connected by roads and arterial highways like a living organism."

Milstein has also captured other such serene and geometric views of Miami and Los Angeles.
