DARKNESS FALLS ON MANHATTAN

Yes, I know, it’s a photographic cliché. But as a photographic subject, New York at night is quite enthralling. So here is Manhattan as darkness descends, seen from five different perspectives – towards the Satue of Liberty, from Brooklyn Bridge, from beneath the bridges that span the East River, from the East River itself and the Hudson, from the High Line, New York’s new elevated park reclaimed from an old train line (I will publish a proper portrait of the High Line next month), and from the top of the Empire State Building. For more pictures, see my photographic website, Light Infusion, or Flickr or 500px.

    Really lovely. I see you were in my neighborhood – Brooklyn Heights. And did you walk across that bridge during the day when the bikers make it – pandemonium?! In the last photo, the building topped with a golden light is the New York Life Insurance building. My father used to work there. He told me the story of the gold tower; they had a choice between a pool up there and the gold tower, and they chose – you guessed it. Hope you enjoyed New York.
