Street photographs are commonly used in New York City photography. These works show an elevated view of the streets and are perfect for recording the energy of the city. Urban pictures such as 'Yellow Cab on Brooklyn Bridge' by Henri Silberman is an example of this kind of work.
Pictures of the New York City skyline are some of the most recognizable in the world. The historic sites and bright lights of New York City photography are both unmistakable and awe-inspiring, as seen in the skyline picture, 'New York City' by Tom Mccarthy.
