    Good shot! Even virtually abandoned, there is a bit of claustrophobia inducing closeness to this and other old tenement areas of lower Manhattan. There is just a hint of lean in / convergence at the top of the photo. You have captured that even without the crowds & cars. It takes me back to days long ago of wandering the city with my Nikon F. Well done.

  10. ?? I’m serious. It should be printed and framed. It’s a great shot.

    Sorry, one grows to be a little paranoid in these times
