Today I explored the city at ground level, walking over 10km from Times Square to the former World Trade Centre site. It's amazing to me how every neighborhood here has its own flavour...its own visual identity and vibe. So far, my favorite area has to be Soho as the architecture represented is what I most associate with New York City. Grimey and artsy - it's also home to the "world's largest graphic design store". Cool.
