I lived in New York City and interned at the International Center of Photography from January to May of 2002. While living and interning there I had many opportunities to photograph the city. The city has a tremendous variety of strength, weakness, beauty, ugliness, reality, life, and rawness to be observed. These few images that I took are simple images of a complex metropolis. They are from the top of the Empire State Building, in Central Park, and in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
