14th Street is a major crosstown street in the New York City borough of Manhattan. The street is an important business location.
In the past 14th Street was an upscale location, but it lost some of its glamor and status as the city grew northward. At Broadway, 14th Street forms the southern border of Union Square. It is also considered the northern boundary of Greenwich Village, Alphabet City and the East Village, and the southern boundary of Chelsea, Flatiron/Lower Midtown, and Gramercy.
14th Street marks the southern terminus of Manhattan's grid system. North of 14th Street, the streets make up a near-perfect grid that runs in numerical order. South of 14th, the grid continues in the East Village almost perfectly, but not so in Greenwich Village, where an older and less uniform grid plan applies.
This is the second time I took a photo from this street viewd from the same place, the differences were the vertical view and a more wide range. The street view from there are always great.

Nice capture from NY the big apple !
Good chosen portrait format which fits well to this scenery.
The yellow cab adds a good note to the compo.
TFS and have a nice weekend

Tu nous offre un très beau point de vue sur cette rue qui est très longue dans l'image. J'aime beaucoup l'effet entonnoir et le jeu des ombres et de la lumière.

interesting view of street in NY. Fine POV you had. I like the perspective. Amazing various buildings. Good street reportage.
Have a great New Year!

last year's and this year's view from this street are so different. The traffic, the lighting, your composition and settings make the two pictures look as taken at a different place. I think that this vertical composition is very attractive, I like very much how the street runs and diminishes very far as well as how it rises very close to the top of the frame. Well defined colours and shadows give a fine graphical aspect to this composition of perspectives. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend,

You're capturing well this scene vy a good angle, a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the tasteful buildings which stand in a row on both sides of the street extended straightly and a good color contrast. It's also effective for yellow cab and the yellow boundary line which divides a lane. And, the shadow projected to the street draws out an additional good impact in this image.
