Welcome to New York City’s beating heart: Manhattan. One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years. The city impresses and inspires like no other in America. There is no place in the world quite like New York City. So much can be said about it – it is big, it is loud, it is beautiful, and most of all, it is iconic. It is the meeting place of the peoples. When I am in New York, I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing, like I’m in a movie. Here is a selection of photographs including scenic views from the Empire State Building.
