HERE’S WHY NYC IS THE PERFECT LOVER

Karsten Staiger is in love with New York. Since the German photographer immigrated to NYC more than 20 years ago, Staiger has been documenting a New York love story like no other – from the rooftops of skyscrapers. He’s adventured, scaled, and even risked his life to capture the intrigue and infatuation of one of the world’s most romantic cities, photographing New York City from above to show off NYC’s unique personality like never before.

Whether it’s capturing that perfect light at sunset from the towering terrace of the W New York – Downtown or observing the heart of the city that never sleeps from the top of W New York – Times Square, Staiger isn’t afraid to climb high and take risks for that perfect shot.

“New York is certainly a love affair,” muses Staiger. “Passionate, but it’s a commitment. You have to work at it. To be a part of the beauty and the struggle you have to give yourself New York completely.”

Having balanced off of rooftops to photograph for other NYC creatives such as John Varvatos, Staiger is now climbing high for his own documentary film interviewing celebrities like Robert Redford on rooftops about why they love NYC. “There’s nothing like New York,” Staiger says, “you can find something new you love every day.”
