    Documenting 100 photos of color found throughout New York City.
    Published:
I moved to NYC in late 2014, having only visited once during high school. Once I started living through the city, I noticed color combinations I've never seen before. It started with the R train's retro yellow LCD sign. I had to collect these colors! 

Traveling from a range of distances to Coney Island (Brooklyn), Flushing (Queens), and Fort Tryon Park (Manhattan). 
I would purposely get lost sometimes to find these hidden treasures. Other times, I would plan these site visits. 
I started this project in 2015 and finished in the beginning of 2017. I only had the weekends to really go out and explore 
areas other than my daily commute.

I used my iPhone to document the colors and posted them all on Instagram as a pressure for myself to not give up on this long journey. Below are some of my favorites (and Instagram crowd favorites) and where I found them.
