A collection of photos by Ara Feducia in New York City.
I had a moment on the Met rooftop when I accepted that these few blocks of concrete castles ultimately define the standards of the arts and culture for our world. I replied, but who are they to define me?
The most interesting people we met were our cab drivers, the Latino gentlemen working at the deli downstairs from the NMG HQ, the Italian lady that sold me a cannoli in Little Italy, the hip hop guys selling comedy tickets on the street, and last the bubble guy in Central Park. These people define the city of New York for me.
