A photographer of the most expensive apartments in the city on his favorite views

As beautiful as the interiors in a luxury apartment may be, often they have nothing on the views.

No one knows that better than Mike Tauber, a photographer who shoots luxury homes and apartments for developers and brokers. Now he’s released a collection of his favorite 200 cityscape images in a new book, “Vista Manhattan: Views from New York City’s Finest Residences.”

In an interview with the Times, Tauber shares some key spots in the city with particularly special views, including the view of the Central Park Reservoir from the Ardsley at 320 Central Park West; the view of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler building from 845 United Nations Plaza; and the view of the Statue of Liberty, the Verrazano Bridge and Governor’s Island from Battery Park.

He also shares a truth that anyone who’s ever tried to snap a photo of the skyline recently knows well; 432 Park is a colossal pain in the ass. “You can see it from everywhere. It’s so tall, I have to shoot wider or else I’d chop off the top of it.”

Still, we have a feeling he would do a better job photographing the building’s interiors than this guy. [NYT]
