The thing most people do when they visit a large city for the first time is marvel at the height of the skyscrapers.

But photographer Navid Baraty thinks the view is much more interesting from above.

For his latest series titled 'Intersection' Mr Baraty has captured life in New York City and Tokyo from the edges of its tallest buildings.

'After seeing countless skyline photos of NYC, I found that the real life of the city can best be captured by pointing the lens straight down from high above,' Mr Baraty told Gothamist.

'You feel the energy and flow of the city - the constant stream of yellow taxis lining the avenues, the waves of pedestrians hurriedly crossing at the change of traffic signals, little figures disappearing into the subway stations. The chorus of honking horns and sirens,' he described.

Lately, Mr Baraty says he's been returning to the roofs at night to capture the city illuminated in the dark - just like a brooding Spiderman.

If you're in New York, you can see the vertigo-inducing pictures in person  on display in the Bowling Green subway st

Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Glad to learn I'm not the only one who gets some uncomfortable feelings, looking down from up high like that.

Stick me in a chopper, I'll fly you at whatever altitude is needed - upside down if necessary.

But buildings? I look at that picture. Part of me gets sick. Part of me thinks "Wonder what it would be like to jump."

I actually get it the worst when I'm halfway up a tall building and look up the edge of the building.
