One Night on 57th Street
57th Street runs across the middle of Manhattan from the East River, through the northern end of Midtown, crossing the opulence of 5th Avenue as it continues in an absolute straight line to the north of Hell’s Kitchen and onto the West Side and the Hudson River. I love this street, it slices through many diverse sections of New York City. During the day it is teaming with shoppers, office workers and tourists. At night it is a very different story. By the time the last restaurant has said goodnight to its final customers and the neon signs are extinguished, 57th Street is already populated by a very different clientele. These photographs were taken during the early hours of September 5th 2012.
