Photographer captures fascinating images of New Yorkers on their roofs during quarantine

Most people in New York City don’t have a backyard – so if they want to go outside without leaving the house, they go to the rooftops.

New York City Photographer Jeremy Cohen, 28, has seen many people hang out on rooftops around his neighborhood in Brooklyn, and went there document their activities on social media.

His photos and videos of New Yorkers dancing, exercising, working and even flying kites on their roofs have since gone viral.

My Brooklyn apartment building towers above every other building in the neighborhood (which I love to brag about as a little person who has never experienced this feeling).

“I see a whole new canvas from my high-floor window,” he said.

“I started making iPhone clips of people on their roof doing sports, doing yoga, reading, meditating, working, exercising, eating and napping.

“Every time I look out my window, I see new people doing new and different things. So then I started taking pictures. ‘

Over the course of the quarantine, he posted photos and videos on Instagram and TikTok, where they deserve quite a bit of attention.

On TikTok, a summary he shared has been viewed more than 3.1 million times so far.

He has seen couples dancing and exercising together. Many people practice on their roofs, jump rope and hit tennis balls.

He has seen a woman painting, a man playing the guitar and a couple knocking out a rug.

Jeremy has a particularly happy vantage point, not only because his roof is so high and gives him a great view.

Many buildings in New York City do not actually have access to the roof for liability reasons.

While some luxury buildings offer outdoor rooftop space – and may even have seating and gardens – most buildings officially block access to the roof (even if some tenants sneak there).

Smart: In March, Jeremy went viral when he flew a drone with his phone number linked to a woman on a neighboring roof.

He said he first saw the woman dancing on her roof and decided to quarantine his time by asking her out in a funny and very new way.

After sending her his phone number through the drone, she texted him a reply – and he heard her name is Tori.

“I can’t believe this really worked and yes this is a real story,” he wrote on Twitter.

Later, the couple went on a first date by having a social aloof dinner while sitting on his balcony while Tori put her meal on her roof.

After a successful dinner date, Cohen said he intended to “take this relationship to the next level” – a step that requires smart thinking on his part.

He let her meet him outside, where he was carrying a giant inflatable bubble to keep them separate.
