Weekend explorations: Midtown Manhattan

During a rare lull (usually, there's triple the crowds and cars). I returned to Princeton after dark, so hope you don't mind this glimpse of our metropolitan area!

Great shot of pedestrians in Manhattan. Happy Theme Day!

Petrea Burchard said...

I wish I'd had one like this for theme day!

LOLfromPasa said...

A classic, Lulu. Very nice.

Joe said...

New York must have the busiest pedestrian crossings I have ever experienced.

Una buena foto, muy buena toma de la perspectiva de los edificios con un buen movimiento de peatones y coches. Enhorabuena.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

too busy for me with all those tall buildings

llandudnopictures said...

Fantastic, just like a scene from a movie. I'm almost expecting King Kong to appear between the buildings in the distance!

Andy said...

Excellent street scene photo. You know you are in New York when you see a street full of yellow cabs.

Red Nomad OZ said...

HHHMMMmmm... so it's not so difficult to hail a cab after all!!! Or are those hordes of yellow cabs just there for display?!?!

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Fabulous NY street scene Lulu, full of colour and excitement, perfect for today.

cieldequimper said...

Grace stole my line! Fabulous NY street scene!!! Makes me want to be there, oh for the energy of NY!

Tanya Breese said...

i don't mind at all, love it!

VP said...

Almost perfect, excellent for this theme day!

Catherine said...

Love the energy + the quintessential NYC cabs in this shot Lulu! Must have been nice to have had blue skies while in the city :)

JM said...

Great background for this pedestrian crossing. Well, it's just Manhattan! :-)

Sharon said...

Manhattan must have the busiest crosswalks in the US. I love your shot looking down the street.

LONDONLULU said...

Thanks so much everyone - I've thoroughly enjoyed seeing all your takes on the theme today too!

magiceye said...

Superbly composed and shot!

Kaya said...

Lulu, you went to New York!!! And you were in the midtown Manhattan! If I could I would go right now!

Love, love so much this picture. City life is in action. Everybody is busy.

Great, so great and very inviting photograph!

Stuart said...

You got it all in one frame ! The skyscraper canyon, the flags, the taxis, the ads, the crosswalk, even a blue sky...perfection !

Leovi said...

Excellent your photo of Manhattan, good perspective and nice colors.

Stefan Jansson said...

Good one.

raf said...

Great capture of the city, full of color and pedestrians for the theme today!

William Kendall said...

Terrific shot, Lulu!

Hazel Ceej said...

A pretty blue sky above yellow cabs and busy legs.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

I like the way the buildings in the distance loom over the pedestrians. We really are all ants. Busy ones, but ants nonetheless.

Lynette said...

Perfect pedestrian photo! Love the perspective and the colors. Thanks!

Magnificent shot!

Carraol said...

Always crowded Midtown streets, beautiful image, so busy and full of energy! (is just around the corner the one I post today, 34th St and Eighth Ave)

Peter said...

So bright and crisp, spring is such a great time NY.

Jim said...

terrific capture

EG CameraGirl said...

Very cool shot! I totally forgot about this month's CDP theme day. OOPS!

Kris said...

I like this perspective..so many things happening!

Zosia said...

Bustling New York City. I've never been there so I am always happy to see scenes from that place. Love the accumulation of yellow cabs in this photo.
Thank you for stopping by at Polonica: Home Again.

Jesh St Germain said...

Great shot! Wonder if you were standing in the median to take it?

LONDONLULU said...

Jesh - yes, I stood on the equivalent, the middle of a 3-way intersection (not the wisest thing to do in midtown:)

Buck said...

What a contrast between the people and all those taxis! What a great interpretation of the theme!
