Some people build skyscrapers. Others scale them.

That’s just what daredevil photographer Viktor Thomas did at 220 Central Park South, the Robert A.M. Stern-designed residential tower currently rising in Midtown. First spotted by Untapped Cities, the photos show vertigo-inducing views from Vornado Realty Trust’s crown jewel.

Thomas, who got more access than the city’s deep-pocketed buyers, posted the insane shots to his Instagram account, @vic.invades.

“The feeling of climbing to the top of this location felt out of this world,” he told Untapped Cities. “It’s as if I was testing out the location for the wealthy people who will eventually be living there. I got to check it out first which is a privilege.”

No word on whether or not Thomas got to test out the building’s $250 million quadplex apartment. [Untapped Cities] and [Curbed] — Kerry Barger
