The view from Gothamist HQ in DUMBO: the Verizon Building!

Italian illustrator Matteo Pericoli "has executed an intimate collection of drawings — glimpses of the city, as seen from the windows of prominent New Yorkers." CityRoom takes a look at his new book The City Out My Window: 63 Views of New York, which includes drawings and stories inspired by them. For example, Stephen Colbert says of his view: "Because my studio is directly across from a windowless telecommunications skyscraper whose peak bristles with microwave transmitters, when I think of my view mostly I think about cancer, so I try not to think about it at all."

Of course, this all sounds very similar to Andrew Sullivan's fantastic project titled "The View From My Window". Inspired by the two, we ask you to now send us the view from your NYC window (include location, or at least borough). We'll compile the best and post as many views from city windows as we can! We've started with our office view... as you can see we get to look at the Verizon Building all day long.
