    Do you mean cities as opposed to farm areas?

    Ok...I don't live in NY, but have been there. I have been to the area of Trump Tower. It reflects the other images that surround it. I used to have a good BW photo that showed the reflctions. There is also foliage/plant along it's architecture. It is very contrasting in nature to the building itself. It was back in the 80s? In Brooklyn..there is the train above the roadway. It stands out quite a bit...next to Yankee Stadium. Other places I have been are more rural looking..more like upstate, but still have the train/subway abve ground.

    I also found a fire escape shot...you can't really tell it is in Chinatown though... http://www.flickr.com/photos/seaquee/3539177075/ Flickr is a pretty good source for photo. Not all places have fire escapes in their architecture..more population and buildings close together..building codes.

    Times Square, Billboards and advertising....cabs, skyscrapers, storefronts...one way streets like Troy, NY..near where the Canal used to be on the Hudson River. http://www.urban75.org/photos/newyork/times-square.html

    Old shot of the subway when it was being built. http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/10/21/nyregion/20101021-ny-subway-historical-photos.html There are some really nice photos which include the train above & below groundlevel..a few fire escape shots. You have to search through the photos..there is also a photo of the old Yankee Stadium hich was demolished. That must be the sepia tone photo I linked. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3F_adv_prop%3Dimage%26b%3D21%26ni%3D20%26va%3Dlong%2Bisland%2Bny%26xargs%3D0%26pstart%3D1%26fr%3Dslv8-w3i&w=780&h=600&imgurl=www.potomacelectric.com%2Flighthouses%2Fphotos%2F92390007.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.potomacelectric.com%2Flighthouses%2Fphoto%2Fusa%2Fnew_york%2Fb076cbc106f199fe6a02b9794f759967%2F0%2F&size=131KB&name=...+Lighthouses%3A...&p=long+island+ny&oid=b3a4fbea31878cb772cfee010fa66e04&fr2=&no=22&tt=578000&b=21&ni=20&sigr=13126362q&sigi=11ns2pqcf&sigb=13mp6930a&.crumb=b3YePWnxLEr This last link is Long Island...fishing industry..not sure if this is what you are looking for. I want to mention Radio City Music Hall. http://www.radiocity.com/about/history.html The photos are not great on this link, but it talks about the history, design and architecture in Rockefeller Center. http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3F_adv_prop%3Dimage%26b%3D21%26ni%3D20%26merge%3D1%26va%3Dradio%2Bcity%2Bmusic%2Bhall%26xargs%3D0%26pstart%3D1%26fr%3Dslv8-w3i&w=600&h=800&imgurl=www.wirednewyork.com%2Fimages%2Fradio_city_music_hall_tree.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwirednewyork.com%2Fforum%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D2857&size=120KB&name=The+Christmas+tr...&p=radio+city+music+hall&oid=7d892ac2cdf30eb1ed299d67e4396a6b&fr2=&no=23&tt=109000&b=21&ni=20&m=1&sigr=11j8egkjr&sigi=11qfdmeln&sigb=145j9osqk&.crumb=b3YePWnxLEr great shot of a street vendor by Radio City & all it's ornate images..it is humbling.
