ABOUT THE LOCATION:
New York City is the backdrop for iconic street photography because so many interesting stories unfold on just about every corner. Just stand still for a few minutes and photo ops will literally unfold right before your eyes.
The city really comes alive in the squares. We will literally hop through a series of squares — from Times Square to Union Square to Washington Square. As we move through the squares, you will see and photograph very different personalities of the city.
Between each stop, we will travel underground on the subway*, with its own set of unmistakable photo opportunities.
