This shot of Prague is set apart by its aerial perspective, which makes the people and buildings look almost like toys. Most European cities have churches or clock towers that you can climb for a couple of euros—it’s the easiest way to capture the streets below from a unique vantage point.

UPDATE 9/27/11: Looks like we confused a few people! This isn't the view from the Empire State Building. It's the view from the Top of the Rock looking north over New York's Central Park.

Paris on the Seine (Before Paris Plage)

201108-b-paris-plage-2jpg

Long before the banks of the Seine were lined with imported sand, oversized lounge chairs and ice cream stands in honor of Paris Plage, the city’s makeshift beach getaway, the river bank was the capital’s economic and social epicenter.

The “Paris on the Seine” exhibit at the Hôtel de Ville (city hall) is a photographic journey that retraces the evolution of the river banks from the Middle Ages to present day where the Seine-side holiday punctuates the urban day-to-day for one month each year. Although Paris Plage has ended for the season, this free exhibit runs through mid-September and is not to be missed.
