Hello all,

I'm not sure if this should be in this section or under photography, but does anyone have suggestions or know of buildings that allow access to upper levels or rooftops? (Aside from Rockefeller & Empire State).

A friend and I are looking to do some photography. We don't have any crazy equipment, just a camera and maybe a tripod or two. It's also for personal use; nothing commercial or for business.

Thanks

Good luck, you can't even get into most buildings just to film an elevator. Yes there are elevator enthusiasts just like train buffs. I've been wanting for years to showcase the elevators in many office buildings in NYC, but security is too tight. You can have better luck in more laid back cities like in Texas or even Canada. People in NYC like acting like they got a diaper up their, well you get it...
