Just when we thought we’d seen every angle of the New York City skyline possible, here comes a mind-bogglingly detailed panorama courtesy of photographer Jeffrey Martin. According to the Daily Mail, the sweeping (and interactive!) image was the product of two days spent atop the Empire State Building, with Martin wielding a Canon 5Dsr and a 135mm lens shooting more than 2,000 frames that were later painstakingly stitched together. The image is in fact so large and exhaustive that its 20 Gigapixels would give way to a photo that’s 57 feet wide and 27 feet tall if printed!

The Daily Mail adds that the final image has a resolution of 203,200 x 101,600 which makes it the biggest image of NYC ever taken. And as such, you can zoom in close to many of the city’s most iconic structures for peeks inside windows and on rooftops.

No stranger to the stupefying, Martin has worked with his brother on a similar project before, documenting the London skyline with using the same approach. You can see that impressive view here.
