From SoHo to Hell’s Kitchen all the way up to the UES, New York City’s different flavors are all captured in Jose Guizar’s series.

Each week a different window highlights the spirit of various Manhattan neighborhoods, and stirs our curiosity as well. left, 94 Bank St. in the West Village.

Driven by curiosity and a constant desire to learn and evolve –among other more material things, of course–, I'm a devoted pursuer of the well-rounded designer utopia.
