Manhattan’s Upper West Side is synonymous with timelessness. Photographing something timeless allows the photographer to choose how to capture these moments and share them, either referencing a time passed or the present.

I headed out one winter’s weekend in New York for a walk around my neighborhood to capture the places and sights that stand to represent an area of New York, and for me, a certain time in my life. I shot these nine images with my Polaroid 440 Land Camera and black and white instant film.
