LOWER EAST SIDE of Manhattan

Again, i tried to process this with a completely different approach.. Many 1sts here.. Lemme know what you think.. - an interesting part of the scene is something that is only partially in the frame: an enormous blanket of clouds was rolling over the city just as I arrived on the roof - it can be seen on the left..

Manhattans Lower East Side (LES): It was traditionally an immigrant, working class neighborhood. But it has undergone rapid gentrification in 2005,[citation needed] prompting The National Trust for Historic Preservation to place the neighborhood on their list of America's Most Endangered Places. It is now home to upscale boutiques, and to trendy dining establishments along its Clinton Street restaurant row.
