Even though my family is used to me stopping every now and then to take photos whenever we are out, we decided to split up for a few hours on our final day in Manhattan. They did a tour of Radio City Music Hall, while I decided to walk from Union Square up to Times Square to meet them after their tour.
I was able to walk along the east-west streets, while slowly moving north block by block, mostly along Broadway. I was determined to stay away from where tourists flocked to, because I really wanted to capture how New Yorkers live their everyday lives.
I was very happy with the images I brought back with me. If New York hotels weren’t so terribly expensive, I’d like to visit more often. Now that my husband has seen the city for himself – and he quite enjoyed our trip – I think I can convince him for another short trip soon, perhaps closer to the fall or winter.
Until then, here are some images from our final day. Enjoy!
