Thank you

This is an excellent photo essay with many nice images Helen. I'd love more color to compliment the one you included! I like the motion and brilliance of that one too....reminiscent of Ernst Haas and William Allard.

Thank you for taking the time and care to share all of these.

David

Echoing David. Fantastic work and thanks for sharing. I get into NYC fairly often from Connecticut and these photos well capture the city.

Nice reference, too, in the thread title. That song always gets to me.

Great atmospheric, gritty Nu Yawk set, Helen, of London’s brash younger sister.
