Cities are made by people. This is of course also true for New York. Be it the Policemen, regulating the traffic delivering a show that can almost compete with the break dancers in Times Square. Showing off is kind of a past time, selfies being taken everywhere by everyone. Some choose the night view city panorama from Rockefeller Center as a background, others choose the LED Version Star-Spangled Banner – but do they know that this decorates a recruiting office for the US Military? The rikshaw driver pumping air into the tires of his vehicle to prepare it for the next customers for a tourist city tour. Will they be more focused on their mobile phone as on their environment like the passenger in the metro?
“One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.”Georgia O’Keefe, American Painter, 1887-1986
