A shortage of land in the New York City makes you think about rational utilization of the air area too.
I took this photo on the streets of Manhattan. Very simpl daily life scene but it makes me smile.

This is definitely a typical NYC view. I was looking at a parking place like this the other day and thinking about a photo. :-) I like the brick wall with the graffiti in the background. Nice presentation with a selection of twelve of the cars.

A very nice and graphically attractive photo. This is of course a natural development in the city where the shortage of land gave birth to the skyscrapers,
I like this well composed and nicely cropped photo.

Serghei, this is brilliant. It works on many levels! (pun intended!)
First, it is a great look at an arrangement that most of us will consider unusual (although I see Brenda says it is typical in NY!), so you get points for showing us something novel.
Second, it is a fine composition, the geometric boxes, the orange structure, the brick backdrop.
Finally, it is a fabulous sociopolitical observation. Here is a community so prosperous that they stack cars (and mostly newer and costly cars!) the way some people stack shoes!
Well done, sir!

almost like a paradise for motorization fans-every kind under the sun.And besides really interesting way of solving the problem of place shortage in such concrete jungle like N.Y!
Nicely observed and executed shot!
PS.Looks like you had really great time over the Big Pond.By the way you wrote you´ve also visited Seattle.Can´t wait to see some pictures from there.
Have a good evening in cold Ural(it´s not better in Cologne-rain,rain and if this is not enough more rain:)

excellente composition, j'aime bien le cadrage sur ce quadrillage et les 12 autos.

I must say that you have used this opportunity perfectly for taking this image. It looks simply eye-catching! Very attractive street photography. Well done!

The lack of space in the city made people be more creative. We have this kind of parking spaces in Bucharest too. Well taken image.

La ville où tout se passe en hauteur, même les stationnement utilisent le moins d'espace au sol possible et ils sont aussi très chers.J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage serré très symétrique.

Stack 'em and rack 'em! What a great urban scene of something most would probably not notice as an opportunity to create both a fun and learned image. I was a bit taken back the first time I saw this in NYC, took me a moment to realize what exactly was going on. It definitely serves a purpose, parking space is a premium...and this is a smart way to maximize the limited resource. Plus, it makes for a terrific photo...almost like a big "tic-tac-toe" of cars! :) Smart composition and execution my friend. Beauty! Have a great day ahead.
My best regards,

Only in New York? We Yanks have economized space as shown in your view due to our over-dependence on individual car trips. I am not aware of the stacked parking space lots in California (at least not yet?)
I and others worked on encouraging the public to utilize car pools and public transit in California with moderate success. Much more can be done and accomplished.
Cheers, and smiles,

very very cool.
Never thought to take a photo of this scene in NYC, which I did see myself aswell.
If I could take my pick, I'll take the BMW on the bottom :)
creative scene to capture in the city, well done.

I like your original title "12" better! ;-) A very nice find, comprising of frames within a frame making a natural collage of 12 cars. Well spotted and very well rendered.
