There are so many different people in New York City.
Different races, from different backgrounds. Different ages, following different religions. Different financial and social standings.
I never really understood the term “people watching” until I moved here a little over a decade ago. It’s not that I wasn’t used to seeing a variety of different people…I was born in Asia, raised in Europe and went to college in Midwest America, so I’ve met my share of people.
What’s so astonishing about New York City in particular is the amount of people you see.
Hundreds upon thousands upon millions of people passing by you in the street at any given moment, going somewhere you’re not and coming from somewhere you weren’t. There’s always someone to look at and always someone looking at you.
People. Are. Everywhere.
