The other day I went to walk with theintention to get to know different parts of the city, some interesting neighborhoods.I step in from the Financial District to the Spanish Harlem and also all overBrooklyn, each place had something to offer me, every single street have theirown spirit.
Rather than go to places and sat me in acoffee shop, restaurant, visit museums, galleries, shops or going to thetypical sites like the Empire States I decided to walk around and see thepeople passing by. I think people can tell you more about a city than the cityitself; just by the way they look, act, react, dress or what they do on their dailybasis.
Cities suffers mutations according what thesociety needs, how they evolve according their needs and the time we ‘re livingtaking in count what is profitable and commercial for the markets.Nevertheless, people stay true on themselves. Every generation keeps the essenceof what they were and what they keep being. Showing their finest characteristics,as if they had polished its edges in time.
So, in this sense it’s possible to get toknown the city through their people, as if they were layers of time livingtogether in one space; like simultaneous parallel universe among us.
