2015-02-10 NY, NYC. Is NYC the American Dream?

Is New York the American Dream? For some people it is the City Of Dreams. People come here from all over the world to pursue their dreams. To make a life.

And this is one of the things I love about NYC. It’s a magnet for people from every country. The best and the brightest make their way here at some point in time. And so the odds of meeting somebody interesting every single time one walks out of the door is higher than any other place I’ve lived. And I’ve lived in fifteen cities/towns across six countries.

I’ve been here for nine years and now I am leaving to look for the American Dream elsewhere. I haven’t seen much of this great country and it’s time I went to have a look.

Whilst I was in Brooklyn shooting images for another project I found myself near the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg so wandered upto the rooftop bar with this stunning view of Manhattan and so decided to stay and shoot the sunset as this is probably the last time for a long time I will have the opportunity to shoot these images.

New York, New York. I will miss you, but I will also be glad to be exploring elsewhere.
