As part of the work on the series "New York Verticals" Michael Wesely spent some time in New York. During his stay, he also took pictures with pinhole and spy cameras in Central Park.
Established in 1859 as a landscaped park and completed in 1873, Central Park is located in the center of Manhattan. At 349 acres, it occupies about 6% of Manhattan's land area and is one of the largest parks in the world. Around 25 million people visit this inner-city park every year.
Very striking are the twin towers of the luxury apartment building The San Remo, right in the picture.
