This is the second post of my New York City adventure. There are at least 2 more posts to come.
As I walked throughout New York City, I could not help but notice a large police presence. Maybe it is because of the heightened security in a heavily populated tourist area. Maybe it is to curb the violence in the crime-ridden boroughs. Whatever the case, I photographed a lot of cops. When I first stepped foot in Harlem, I was not sure whether seeing officers on every corner was a comforting or alarming feeling. Anyway, enough rambling. New York streets (and subways) are interesting to say the least. I saw everything from a police officer texting on horseback, to a music video being filmed, and lot and lots of cops. Here is my “documentary” approach to life in New York City as I walked through the boroughs.
|The first photo I took on the street, and one of my favorites of the trip.. As blue-collar as it gets.|
|In subway below Manhattan's Chinatown.|
|It is starting to drizzle as I shot this. I hope the artwork was not too wet upon completion. The facial expressions drew me to this scene.|
|The BIG piano in F.A.O. Schwartz from the Tom Hanks film, "BIG." Fun fact: In 1988 when the movie was filmed, this thing cost $15,000. Check out how much it is now!|
|Somebody wished for. . . that.|
|I believe these guys are called the "Rassholes" or something like that.|
|Rockerfeller Center cop.|
|Times Square mounted police.|
