    Fabulous, James. Makes me want to get on the Amtrak and head to the Big City!
    We’re looking forward to your presentation at the Schenectady Photographic Society soon.

  2. Wonderful collection, James! Loved the entire set and a few in particular: the B&W of the four guys looking out the store window, the clever self-portrait near the end (a typical New Yorker taking photos), the man conducting either singers or an orchestra, the pink-eared dog having his portrait done, the performer in the subway train…I could go on. Like Linda, makes me want to get on a train and photograph in the big city again. Thanks so much for posting these!

  3. Hi James Maher,1
    Only in New York.
    Ain’t it grand!
    And ain’t it grand to be able to take such great photos that capture and convey the Soul(s) of NYC.
    Thanks for your concern and commitment to The City and your eagerness to share it with us.
    It is appreciated by many.

  4. Thank you for once again taking me on a photographic trip to NY. I was fascinated by your photos because they made me wonder about the lives of each individual.

  5. Hi James:

    I hope all is well with you and your family.
    These images, and those in your last post about the “Crossroads of Luxury” are awesome!
    Quintessential NYC; you should author a book with your City street work. I’ll be first in line to purchase it!
    All the Best,
