New York photos: readers' pictures of NYC (slide show)

Time Out partnered with Samsung to find fantastic pictures of NYC, as captured by New Yorkers. Here are 101 of our favorite New York photos.

In a photo-heavy battle of New York versus London, there’s no contest (to us, at least). Readers were asked to capture photos of New York as part of Time Out and Samsung’s Share Your Now competition—and in our opinion, the pictures of NYC are quite captivating, not merely focussing on the skyline and iconic attractions like the Statue of Liberty, but on commonly missed details at ground level and their fellow New Yorkers. Check out 101 of our favorite reader-submitted photos in the slide show above, and for even more, visit timeout.com/shareyournow.
