Well, you need to really know how to find these spots. The bad areas you see on some of the pictures are atypical of any New York neighborhood.

Great photography!

You captured some very rundown parts of New York.

It's interesting that you guys got the impression that I ventured out to bad areas. Most of the places/things in my images are very common in much of the city. Looking back through the pictures, I think only 3 or maybe 4 images could be described in such a way. I think a lot of people get the wrong impression of NYC, assuming it all looks like Manhattan, when most of its residents and geography is outside of it. I always recommend visitors to venture outside of Manhattan, which is only a fraction of this city's identity.

Did they finally excavate all of it? I remember rumors that there's even a train somewhere in the unexplored part.

New York. What a town. Rustic, charming and very American. I want to visit this interesting city this summer. I'll stick to Manhattan. Are the outer boroughs less safe than Manhattan itself? Is it cheaper to stay there and then take a subway into Manhattan?
