New York, NY

I was in NYC for a couple days at the beginning of October. When I wasn't eating as much food as possible I snapped a few photos. Photos include the view from my hotel, street scenes, the park, the met, and the highline. Enjoy.

I feel like the best thing about New York is those cast-iron buildings, so damn beautiful.

Yup. The part of New York that still looks and feels like New York, as opposed to the new crap.

New York sure is looking good these days.

A lot of interesting perspectives in this set.

Probably because it's a physical manifestation of wealth inequality in the US.

I feel the complete opposite, but I do understand your feelings.

Before I saw your post, I was thinking this resembled the fantasy futuristic New York that we envisioned 25 years ago.
