Having reviewed bits and pieces of New York's architecture in the last post, now let's concentrate in its people; NYC is quite a lively city, some of its districts having non-stop activity 24/7, like for example Times Square. But the Big Apple has its dark point: pedestrians walking its streets are not the  paramount of friendliness, most of them they don't like having a camera pointed at them and they will certainly let you know that (and it does not help me the fact that I use a DSLR for street photography as well).
So, do not expect many close ups as when I was shooting I hadn't my mind in being punched or ran after on the streets, even though street photography is perfectly legal in NYC. So if you ever plan to shoot street... be stealthy, be fast and be prepared. Enjoy the "city that never sleeps" series!
