Micro Manhattan

Manhattan is bigger than life in pop culture, iconically, population-wise, in height and in our minds. One can look a million places and see sunrise, midday and sunset cityscapes of New York taken throughout the history of photography as an art form. This trip, I enjoyed recording the little moments.
