Crossing Broadway / W72nd Street seen from the second floor of an Urban Outfitters shop. We’ve seen nearly all of their branches in Canada and the US. In Germany we unfortunately don’t have any, the next one is in Antwerp, Belgium. The H&M chain from Sweden on the other hand seems to be pretty hip in America with few shops only in the largest capitals, they are quite new here. In Europe H&M are ten a penny and have a cheap and bulk image.

Kreuzung Broadway / 72ste Strasse West, fotografiert aus dem ersten Stock einer Urban Outfitters-Filiale. Wir waren in fast jeder Niederlassung in Nordamerika. In Deutschland gibt es leider keine, die nächste ist im belgischen Antwerpen. H&M hingegen gibt es in Europa ja wie Sand am Meer und wirklich cool findet sie niemand. In Kanada und den USA gibt es H&M erst seit kurzem, aber nur vereinzelt in den wirklich großen Metropolen. Hier sind sie noch relativ hip.

Decades ago the red house from 1882 was the location of the noted cafe and restaurant “Treffurth’s”. Broadway 732 / Washington Place, Greenage Village / NoHo (= North of Houston Street). Now there’s a shop of German cellphone giant T-Mobile on the ground floor. Treffurt is a city in Germany.

  2. It’s has always been a childhood dream of mine to go to NYC! I’ve only been there once and plan to come back and work there after graduation! Your photos just inspires me!
