The dizzying snaps show stunning scenes across the Big Apple from high up on the top of the concrete jungle’s landmark skyscrapers.

Andrej Ciesielski, 19 from Munich, Germany, climbed 400ft to walk along the very top of the building located on Pine Street in the heart of the city, all whilst risking his life.

Andrej said: “I’ve been to New York twice before but I wanted to visit again because it’s one of my favourite cities to climb the rooftops.

“But this time around we had to be particularly careful, if you get caught you can get in a lot of trouble, especially in New York.

“My friends and I climbed the 50 floors by feet, we had already done it once before but we wanted to go back to get the perfect footage.

“After climbing to the top and spending five minutes on the spire, I saw a security guard waving for us to come down, but the manager of the building was really friendly.

“The views of the city were incredible.

“Even though I love New York my favourite city for rooftopping is Hong Kong, it’s much easier to enter the rooftops and you don’t get in trouble for trespassing.

“It’s also the city with the best skyline and the most skyscrapers.”
