It looks like this trip was a lot of fun and you got to see the real New York and most importantly experience it. I am jealous. I live near New York and have not seen as much of it as you. Great job with the pictures.
Steph-- this is stunning.The juxtaposition of lines and repetition in composition really draw out the idiosyncratic elements of each photo. It's uncanny how repetition can actually make difference more salient. awesome.
