Almost everyone has New York City in their mind.
Real or manufactured….it can’t be avoided and it is primarily Manhattan we see.
The City (because no one calls Manhattan anything else) has come to be the epitome of success:
“If you can make it here; you can make it anywhere”
One of the most filmed cities in the world; The Big Apple is portrayed in movies, TV shows, commercials pushing luxury cars and diamonds, as well as adult diapers and telephones. Katz’s Deli was the scene of the world’s most infamous fake orgasm in the movie ‘When Harry Met Sally’. Katz’s make great pastrami sandwiches too; you can ask any New Yorker.
Swimming in the sea of hype, glitter, and desire, are 8 million people speaking 800 languages. A blast furnace of races, cultures, creeds and political beliefs they can fill every nook and cranny in the street. Somehow they push upward into the skyscrapers, toward the sun, and into the dinge of the subways…mostly without friction. Heading who knows where or to what purpose.
New York is filled with people: forming a mindful/mindless mass. We negotiate the streets with them: avoiding, ignoring and imploring and, occasionally, cursing.
Sharing a cramped flat on 31st and Broadway, Mr. Horishnyk and Mr. Ott, resided in the throbbing, engorged, endlessly beating heart of Midtown Manhattan. Every new day greeted with high expectation, we sallied forth as the valiant knights of the still image. Wending our way where sun, shadow, and crowds beckoned, Walter (from the Midwest) and Richard (from New Yawk), look to make pictures to impart their personal visions of the city.
The result, we hope, gives you a good look at:
