NYC 2012/2013 NYE



These are a collection of photos from my recent trip to New York. The only photo that really requires an explanation is probably the man on the tracks. We were waiting for a train at the 34th street station, when this man crawled from underneath the train on the opposing track and came across to our side. The police quickly arrived and took him away. This was December 28th, 2012, does anyone have any more information on what happened that day?

    Great photos as always, the young lady is so beautiful. Love the shot of the huge legs and feet behind. That fella on the track must be a fugitive from something naughty…

    Nice to see such life in your images. I have a special fondness for the black and white ones.

    It looks like you had a great trip! I live close to Manhattan so go in often. Weird that a guy would be on the tracks–its so dangerous. You might like my IMovie titled “NY State of Mind” under my For Reel category (a bunch of my photos of NYC set to music)

    These are some awesome photos. I really like the first one and the train station. Again in the train station photo, those people who are blurred, how did you manage that. I don’t think I’ve seen that effect before.

    Amazing stuff and looking forward to your next post.

    Great shots …. you really found your NYC!!! There is nothing mention is the underground news about the incident you witness, so it can be anything too serious. My pick is the photo in the snow – recall that too well from my winter months in NYC.

    A contrasting environment from your other pics Patrick – the bridge image is wonderful but NY always seems to look right in black and white. You also look like the healthiest people there. Not that I’ve been to NY …. or the US … or Canada … or the Americas generally …. Keep posting and I’ll hopefully get to see some of it someday –

    I didn’t hear anything on the news about it but, I’m from NYC and i see that happen all the time. Especially at stations like 34th street. Some people simply jump into the tracks to cross over to the other side, the side they need because they don’t want to go down, around and up to the other side. Some stations don’t have a cross over to the other side too so I’ve seen people just jump into the tracks and walk across.

And I love the series about the snow, the mountains and the forest: you have much better landscapes (and snowfalls) than we do here in the UK! Our highest “peak”? 4400 feet above sea level. Glad you like “In search of unusual destinations”, by the way. Phil.
