See gorgeous aerial photos of a miniature scale model of NYC

For the 1964 World’s Fair, Robert Moses had a 1:1200 scale replica of New York built that is still on display at the Queens Museum.

By the nature of time the original piece is somewhat dated, but has found new life thanks to LA-based photographer Spencer Lowell and his photo series of the model titled: “New York, New York, New York.”

The photos were on display on Randall’s Island earlier this month as part of the Frieze New York art fair.
