A Bite of the Apple

05-28-2014_64 copyWords and Photographs by Elizabeth Pollard

I have had an irrational obsession with New York from a very young age, as a lot of people probably do. So, in the summer of my second year of university, I packed my bags, found a flat in East Harlem, landed an internship at Esquire Magazine and traveled the three and half thousand miles across the Atlantic to take a bite of the apple. I spent the next six weeks viewing the city with rose tinted glasses, and to my boyfriends dismay, they have not yet come off.

One day, some day, I will return for another (hopefully longer) adventure. But for now, the photographs I took will have to keep me company.
