Downtown Brooklyn is on the rise! I recently shot two new high rise building in downtown Brooklyn that are coincidentially across the street from each other.  Their proximity came in handy when I needed a good view from the terraces of the other!  The first was the FXCollaborative designed 53 story residential tower called The Ashland and the second was the 12 story HTC Brooklyn Health Center designed by Francis Cauffman.
