Valerian: Dark Fashion Gothic Portrait Art by Elaine Foster  




New York, NY

"I like New York in June, how about you?
I like a Gershwin tune, how about you?
I love a fireside when a storm is due.
I like potato chips, moonlight and motor trips, how about you?"
~ Frank Sinatra

Atratus & Valerian visited New York City from June 14th to July 1st, 2003. Most of the trip was spent in Manhattan, with short excursions to New Jersey and the Hamptons (Sag Harbor) mixed in. Pictures are arranged in rough chronological order, from top to bottom (thumbnails were made rather small to save space). All photos by Michael R. Barrick.
