Meatpacking Dist. circa 2010

Meatpacking District. Circa 2010. New York City.

This is a followup to my shot posted exactly a year ago: Meatpacking District. Circa 2009. After I posted it, Valerie mentioned that I should do these every year. So here it is. Cant believe its been a year already. As you can see, not much has changed in the Meatpacking Dict in 365 days, which is why some parts of New York City are so timeless.

    Not much has changed including the bus (moved a few yards) and construction at camera right is ongoing.

    Cool to see the comparison. Classic feel to this.

  • k@ on 18.06.2010 @ 14:22

    Your luminous B&W makes this shot very classic !

  • frankdejol on 18.06.2010 @ 17:52

    Magnificent mood. Looks like, in the early twentieth century (of course, if only to remove these modern cars...). I love this shot!

  • Nestor Antonio on 18.06.2010 @ 17:59

    Nice capture. What kind of technique you use to convert to B & W? I use Alien Skin Exposure.

  • John Maslowski on 18.06.2010 @ 20:39

    Impressive B&W image, excellent contrasts and tones. Agree this has a classic feel to it, great job!

    good POV ... like the vintage look

  • george@minimalistics on 19.06.2010 @ 15:35

    Could have been taken last year - or fifty years ago - except they didn't have Mini's then. But it retains all the character, nostalgia and charm of those earlier days. Lovely shot.

    I love NY.

  • Laszlo on 19.06.2010 @ 20:16

    Awesome! I keep tabbing betweend the 2010 and 2009 photos like a maniac. Too bad pixelpost won't allow you to post more than one picture in a single post...

  • Céline on 19.06.2010 @ 21:43

    Lovely shot ! Nice b&w !

  • grapf on 20.06.2010 @ 03:23

    a very fine city capture. The black&white gives a timeless impression, the elevated perspective is perfect!

  • Marie on 20.06.2010 @ 05:19

    plein de détails dans cette scène de rue ! J'aime bien.

  • JD on 20.06.2010 @ 05:51

  • jelb on 20.06.2010 @ 08:55

    bonsoir,
    Nice range of tones, contrast..bravo!

  • Ben on 20.06.2010 @ 17:10

    What a classy picture. Love light/dark separation on the left and right side.

  • Shawn Bierman on 20.06.2010 @ 19:39

    Impressive b&w work.

  • fabrizio on 21.06.2010 @ 01:28

    very precise looks like a photo with a atmospera the early 900 nice work

  • Turnbill on 21.06.2010 @ 06:12

    Yes, not much has changed. It would be interesting to see an historic (say 1900's) photo from he same viewpoint.

  • mooch on 21.06.2010 @ 11:06

    A great gritty urban shot

  • Bee on 21.06.2010 @ 16:15

    I love it! Hope I can visit it someday :)
    Thanks F.

  • Bim on 22.06.2010 @ 06:39

    Nice shot Faisal. Gritty.

  • PhotoGeek on 22.06.2010 @ 08:17

    Great "classic" photo. Really like how the mini is caught in the center of the frame.

  • Andrey Samolinov on 29.06.2010 @ 09:51

    Excellent perspective
    Great shot

  • kyungmee (amey fischer) on 30.06.2010 @ 09:20

  • Arjan - PlasticDaisy on 30.06.2010 @ 13:40

    This could be a shot from the 50's if it weren't for those new cars riding around :) Lovely strong contrast!
