Great images. You really capture the hectic, vibrant atmosphere of the place well.

After such photos I cant understand how people can live in NY. It seems so dirty and overfull.
Correct me if I wrong.

MipH it's all about the vibrancy, the buzz, the fact that the place is 24/7 and constantly busy, the fact that there is always something to do and so forth.

I'm from Perth and it's as quiet as anything. We don't even have deregulated trading hours and the small bar scene is almost non-existent! What we do have is nice, warm weather, lots of sunshine, a relatively small population for a capital city and hundreds of kilometres of pristine shoreline and beaches. For some people, that is what they would consider paradise, for others (like myself) it's a boring, lifeless place and a city like New York has massive appeal for the reasons I stated earlier.

Different things 'do it' for different people. It's as simple as that.

I'm from Moscow, Russia. And I've been in Australia, Melbourne.
And I think Moscow will be as NY one day: is 24/7 and constantly busy, the fact that there is always something to do and so forth. Millions of people are here, smog, traffic jam, expensive, fast life, no time for personal life, only work and road. It's no good.

Wow I love looking at NY. NY makes every other city in America look small and boring. Well maybe with Chicago as an exception. I never get tired of looking at NY...I love the energy.
