Luxury real estate photographer Evan Joseph fell in love with New York City in 1992, when he moved there after graduating from Vassar College and made his first venture down into an underground record store on 8th Street.

Now, more than 20 years later, Joseph is flying high above the city in a helicopter, capturing sweeping aerial images of the beloved skyline.

His newest book, "New York From Above", is an ode to One World Trade Center. Completed in July 2013, the newly finished structure was for Joseph — and many New Yorkers — a form of healing after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

"When One World Trade was finally completed, I felt that the city had been restored in some meaningful way, and I wanted to capture all-new cityscapes that featured this ‘new’ New York," Joseph told Business Insider.

Ahead, 13 photos from the book that celebrates Joseph’s cherished city.

Joseph has been flying above New York and capturing its fantastic views for over 10 years.

When the weather permits, he’ll fly multiple days in a row.

His favorite time of day to shoot is at sunrise. "It’s just sublime … so still and full of anticipation," he said.
