The people of New York make the city interesting. Everyone has a story to share, which is why the Humans of New York series are so touching and popular all over the world.

NYC - Lady in white

I also had the opportunity to meet some great New Yorkers. The funny thing is I usually expect them to mind me taking photo’s, which is often not the case. Some feel flattered, others are interested in why I am in New York, talk about themselves or even thank me for smiling at them. Even in a big city like this it comes down to the people that create it and bring it to live. We briefly talk, exchange a smile of understanding or don’t even notice each other, but the people that I meet make my stay special and memorable. Thank you New York!
