LA NY is a dazzling visual tale of two cities, Los Angeles and New York, photographed from the air, shooting straight down at a 90 degree angle to emphasize the particular patterns of place and how the urban grid adapts to local topography - and, indeed, how the topography is itself adapted to human purposes. These two most distinct and distinguished cities are revealed in astonishing detail, as Milstein explores residential and commercial neighbourhoods, parks and recreation spots, as well as industrial districts and the infrastructure of transportation. Iconic buildings and landmarks appear, but also the compelling geometries of suburban housing developments, apartment complexes, commercial hubs, entertainment and financial centres, as well as airports and shipping terminals. His work combines architecture, science and art.

Using high resolution cameras mounted to a stabilizing gyro, Milstein leans out of helicopters over Los Angeles where he grew up and over New York where he now lives, looking for shapes and patterns of culture from above, continually awed by the difference between the aerial view and the view on the ground. His topologist's interest emphasizes the abstraction of pattern and reveals aspects of urban design and planning of both cities. In addition to the urban topography, certain events and activities have also been captured, such as the Macy's Day Parade and outings at the beach.
