Cities at their busiest times are among the favorite subjects of street photographers. The energy can be hypnotic, and the activity often makes for an interesting profile of its city dwellers. With today’s featured snaps taken in New York, it’s easy to see why photographers often get drawn to the hustle of rush hour.
In 2003, street photographer and photojournalist Ryan Brown squeezed amidst the crowd of morning commuters in one of the busiest spots in the world: New York City. To really get into the morning rush of the city, he chose Grand Central Terminal, which also happens to be one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions. As expected, his black and white photographs paint a picture of the frenzy that New Yorkers typically find themselves entangled in during their rush hour subway commute.
