First Thing … New York

First Thing … New York

Continuing my series where I ask people about the “First thing that comes to your mind when I say…(insert country/city/place)”,

this time I decided to ask everyone about New York. A city I visited as a child and don’t remember much of, but one that has been an iconic city because of its people, films, monuments, buildings, parks, and a few more reasons that you will find below. For me New York is a city I want to photograph in black and white, it is a city that I want to visit to spot celebrities walking along us mere mortals, it is a city I want to interact with, eat a hot dog in, watch a Broadway show in, ride the subway in, and lastly watch it light up again, night after night, overcoming all that it has suffered.

There you have it... just as diverse answers as the city of New York. I personally loved how cinema merged so beautifully with the city in a number of answers.  What do you think of the city... do tell.
