After walking around the business part Manhattan where you see only the grey buildings from the glass steel and concrete these red stairs seem like a something picturesque and very original.
Just a fresh air for tired guest of the Big Apple.

Very interesting, original and attractive NYC photograph!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, large vertical format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent to present all those NYC urban details!
TFS - congrats,

hmm...I think I may have photographed the exact same building!
like you said, its nice to step a bit outside of the downtown NYC sky scrapers sometimes, and get to see some of the classic appartment styles with the hanging ladders on the exterior.
there are many NYC classic scenes, and this is certainly one of them.

HI Serghei, This stairway is classic scene in NYC. I saw many of them in China Town while I visited NYC but they were much worn out than that of this one. The graffiti on the shop gates is other classic scene in area with ethnic groups. Wonderful composition with lot details. Thank for sharing

I like the bright colors in this photo. The red fire escape matches the color of the building beside it. Add some metal gates, some graffiti, and these small food shops, and you have a typical NYC scene that can be found on many side streets.

This is probably just another NY back street, a view that could be found in a thousnd places, which in my mind makes it even better. I like the beauty of the simplicity and ordinariness. The red fire escape is so very typical and creates a great pattern against the white wall, and it's perfectly matched by the red letters of the restaurant signs and marquee.

Hi dear Mr I.F.,
You found very attractive olace, the bright red facade and even brighter fire stairs. I loved them, wanted to have many photos. Pleasant a bit lazy atmosphere in sunny day. Simple but very attractive composition.
Have a nice week

your N.Y series is really superb for me!
You have excellent sense and intuition to capture that aspects of New York other photographers often overlook.So it´s always something original and refreshing from this one of the most photographed cities in the world.
Here I like a lot how you framed the scene and how you placed this red stairs,which makes the whole scene so expressive and beauituful.
Have a nice day

C'est le quartier idéal pour prendre des photos d'escaliers de secours. Cela fait maintenant partie du patrimoine architectural new-yorkais.Le cadrage vertical est parfait.

How are you my dear friend? Getting closer and closer to seeing our Left Coast now. :)) Love these urban streets of NYC, the ones off the beaten path that have a bit more character and show more of the "real" side of the city. You certainly found a good scene full of both bright and rustic color. I like the inclusion of the tree branches too, making me feel like I am actually standing there in the shade taking in this visual. An unassuming street, but full of personality and detail. Nicely spotted and well framed. Have a great new day.
My best wishes from the States,
