Spectacular top-down views of the busy streets of New York City, taken by American photographer Navid Baraty.

These top-down views of traffic intersections in New York City were taken by American photographer Navid Baraty.

Watching the pace and flow of New York City from above is amazing. The constant stream of yellow taxis lining the avenues, the waves of pedestrians hurriedly crossing with the change of traffic signals, little figures disappearing into and emerging from the subway stations, the chorus of honking horns and sirens. It’s all so rhythmic and strangely soothing to watch.
