Pulling into Marcy | New York City
My second trip to New York was completely different to the Manhattan-only experience of my first 11 years earlier. We stayed in an apartment on South 1st Street in Williamsburg. The block remained steadfastly Puerto Rican in the face of hipsterisation with dice games on the street running into the the early hours. Our local station was Marcy and this sunset moment in March captures some of what makes NYC so magical and strangely exotic to a Londoner.
