I was inspired to create this project after walking around New York City in 95 °F heat. So, I rented a thermal imaging camera, drove back to Manhattan, and took thermal images. John E. Frederick from the University of Chicago explained how the urban heat island effect showed itself in each of the photos and I thank him for his time on this project.

Thank you to Business Insider, The Weather Network, Gizmodo, Gothamist, Popular Science, Curbed, Mail Online, Wired, and more for explaining the urban heat island effect.
