Fragments of an American Dream

Brookly Bridge, a place where generations of dreamers have walked already

We have all seen thousands of pictures from New York and yet, there is probably no way of showing New York "as it really is", especially not in a single picture. The people who came to New York so long ago were dreamers, seeking happiness and a better life, the people who come to New York today are the same. They are dreamers, too, chasing the American dream that probably has never been more than a great but vague and blurry collective idea.
