Photo by myself at Fifth Avenue and 81st Street, on the Upper East Side.
A woman stood outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, seeking the generosity of strangers. This image was taken on a windy and cold day last week.
Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side is known for its fancy apartment buildings. Manhattan is an expensive place to live in general, and especially so in this neighborhood.
