Big City - New York

When I went to the Big City exhibition at the Wien Museum, I noticed, that I haven't uploaded most of my New York pictures yet. I Made them one year ago on 1 June and 2 June 2008, at the end of the Trek America trip. It is not really street photography as seen at the museum, but it is about the Big Apple.
