I am an ex-new yorker (lives IN Boston) and have contributed a bunch of my thoughts to this site. If you miss NYC as much as me (or know someone who does) you may be interested in my new photography business.
Basically, give us a location in NYC (your favorite bar, apartment building, bench in Central Park) and we will take photos of it. You will see 5-10 photos (we always take one of the closest street sign as well i.e 21st and 7th) in four different styles (Real, Sepia, B&W, and Watercolor) which you can then order prints, canvas wraps, IPhone covers etc.
Anyway, check out the site www.memoriesofny.com and if you like the idea I hope to work with you.
Thanks again, and happy holidays.
