New York City, shot by Edward Steichen

Edward Steichen had a long career that he filled with tons and tons of beautiful photos of all different subject matter, but to put them in some kind of order, I'm showing you some that he took of New York. The Flatiron is the most iconic, I'm sure, but I especially find the Brooklyn Bridge interesting, particularly when put in a historical context; I'm sure you don't have to be told about all the lights and buildings that surround it now.
