New York waterfront in winter

 

Most people would surely agree that New York is one of the most photogenic cities in the world.

These photos were taken in the long ago pre-digital days, during one of my first visits in January 1984.  I’m fond of the colour contrast of the photos, which was given free, without any planning by me, by the hazy winter sunlight.

The pre-2001 presence of the World Trade Centre is telling, but, even more striking for me,  are  the foreground ships, suggesting a still busy waterfront.

Contrast with the  photo below,  taken 19 years later from the same promenade.
