Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

New York Is… Steps

08-28 StepsMany traits set New York apart from other places. Two such attributes are that the city is relentlessly vertical and kinetically pedestrian. Put the two together and it’s no surprise that the metropolis is virtually made of steps. From round steps to rickety steps, from fire escapes to escalators, from double-set grand staircases to wide front-step terraces, you see steps everywhere you go in New York. So scale them, climb them, look and see what there is to be seen from the top of the steps. This is New York, vertical and pedestrian.
