It's difficult to confine my New York adventures to just one location, one adventure, one party, or one experience. Coming up for your viewing pleasure: a smörgåsbord of just some of what makes NYC what it is.
I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stop professing my love for New York City, nor will I be able to adequately explain everything that makes this city so amazing. After living here for a couple of years, there will always be little things that you’ll either see or experience that feel like the city itself is saying hello. It could be the extremely pulled together old lady that sits on the steps in front of Chicago, or the overweight man who walks around the city with his pet cat sitting on his head.
Maybe it’s your favorite landmark building, an art installation, or the way the clouds look when you’re lying on the grass in central park. Most of the time it’s just hanging out with friends: in the park, grabbing food at Burger Joint, or at a Yankees game. Yes, New York is a city with endless things to see and do, and because of that, it’s a city that is constantly changing and evolving. And you can too, if you’re up for the ride.
New York is full of interesting people. Everywhere you look you, will find good-looking, smart, and powerful characters; models, actresses, entrepreneurs, managers, artists.

So here are a few tips, courtesy of the Lomo'Instant, that will help you to break the ice.

As Steve Jobs puts it, "creativity is just connecting things." It's all about tracing one's experiences and pushing the boundaries of what's already known to establish new things. The Lomography community is no stranger to these instances. In fact, the community is filled with brilliant minds who are always ready to refine existing techniques and look for innovative ways to express their visions and ideas. Here are just a few of the creative lomographers we've come to love over the years.
There is a weekend in New York where the city streets look like an alternate universe, full of fantastic characters and people who seem to have walked out of a comic book or a movie. This weekend is the NY Comic Con weekend and people from everywhere come to one of the biggest comic convention to be part of one of the biggest Cosplay competitions.
"Don't say you're color blind, that's why we're here again." Over the weekend, the people of New York City united as one in support of diversity and justice for all, regardless of skin color or race. Black lives matter.
