When I moved to New York City in June of 2000, I was one year out of graduate school, my engagement had just ended, and I was starting a new job at the Museum of Modern Art as a studio photographer. Knowing full well that one’s impression of a given place is strongest early on, I vowed to carry my camera daily to capture the events and details of the city which I would surely encounter. These images are a small sampling of what I experienced on my daily commute, and explorations throughout the area.

    Hi Todd,
    Jason showed me a lot of pictures when last Easter weekend and was impressed by the nuances of the various pictures he shot. I miss the 9/11 shots of the smoke rising from the Twin Towes which wa before and after the shot of the man in the ferry boat. there was an impression of sadness in posture of the man looking away into what I inferred was the 9/11 shots. Were those shots omitted at the exhibit?

    When will the exhibit end? Thanks for sharing these shots with us.

    For all of their efforts, the suabwy map provided by the MTA is basically useless unless you already know both the city and the suabwy system very, very well. For visitors to the city I always suggest the Streetwise Manhattan map, which can be found in most bookstores. It is the only map of the city I’ve ever found that shows both the suabwy stops and the actual streets of the city. I don’t know how it’s some kind of revelation that people would need both these pieces of information, but it seems that this is the only publisher that’s figured it out.As to the commenter above who mentioned the rotation that’s just what we do here. We pretend the streets run north/south; it’s way easier that way. Also, consider it from a mapmaker’s perspective think of all the wasted space if the island was to lay on the map at the proper angle rather than vertically. Wouldn’t work out at all.Nathan many thanks for the info!

  3. Einerseits war’s schon richtig geil, andererseits gibt’s noch viele Länder auf dieser schönen Erde die bereist werden wollen.Wenn es aber vom zeitlichen und finanziellen passt, dann könnte ich mir das gut vorstellen.Ãœbrigens:Wenn Du Hilfe brauchst beim Hotel suchen, dann meld dich bei mir oder Eugen, der kann Dir da bestimmt weiterhelfen

  4. Awesome. No complaints from me, then!Actually– I feel a bit silly for asking, but would it be possible to put a ‘formatting FAQ’ up somewhere? I can never remember whether a given forum or blog uses traditional HTML or stand-in markup, and I don’t think I’m the only one.

  5. We took our daughter to Disney many times, and to this day enjoy looking at the videos and pictures. We have even taken a Disney cruise, AWESOME. For a kid and their parents we made memories that are priceless!
