"I believe in New Yorkers. Whether they’ve ever questioned the dream in which they live, I wouldn’t know, because I won’t ever dare ask that question." - Dylan Thomas

The citizens of New York and New Jersey are some of the most incredible, determined, and resilient people on earth. Through tragedy and triumph they inspire and capture the imagination of the world. Hurricane Sandy only added to that collective respect and admiration for a place where the American dream marches to its own beat. What we've shared this week are only a few of the thousands of narratives that echo the spirit of this area. We hope that you, our audience here on Instagram, have been inspired by these stories and images as much as we have. 
We want to thank the team over @VSCO for making the expression of this project beyond Instagram a reality. Please visit their incredible Journal for an even more in depth look at our experiences in Rockaway, Staten Island and New Jersey. We are grateful for their support.
