A black and white photograph of the downtown New York area. The vertical framing and the narrow print of the photograph highlights the height of the partially cropped high-rise buildings on either side of the centrally framed street. People can be seen walking on the street along with cars. Sunlight sneak through the surrounding tall buildings, illuminating the street with horizontal bands of light.
