Inspirational Images of New York

9 May 2013

When New York-based Magali Padilla isn't helping American travellers explore foreign lands, she indulges in her passion for photography. Originally hailing from Brittany in France, Magali currently lives around 15-minutes from Downtown Manhattan, on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River.

"Arriving in NYC is an exciting and overwhelming experience to your senses," said Magali.

"The combination of old and modern architectural styles; the abundance and incessant flow of vehicles, business people and tourists all mingled together on long avenues, surrounded by giant steel buildings, contrasting with all the beautiful spots of nature is an amazing sight. As you look around this eclectic and diverse city, you will find a multitude of sights, attractions, museums, shops and of course those world-renowned restaurants - my favourite would have to be the New York style delicatessens. Whatever interests you, you will find it in Manhattan."

For the past six years Magila has been honing her visual skills and we're proud to showcase some of her shots that she took of one of the world's great cities. Here are our favourite images of New York as captured by Magali.
