The view from 432 Park is magnificent. The penthouse at One57 gives you unprecedented views. The observation deck of One World Trade Center will surely take anyone’s breath away.

But there’s only one thing more impressive: New York City, as seen from outer space.

Scott Kelly, operations branch chief of the International Space Station who is currently orbiting Earth, has taken some pictures of Manhattan, Gothamist reported, in honor of EMS week. Kelly used to be an EMT in Jersey City 30 years ago, he tweeted. [Gothamist] — Claire Moses
