Only a handful of neighborhoods in the world can claim to have as much cachet as the West Village neighborhood in NYC. Beautiful ivy-walled brownstones, home to many of New York's elite residents, flank charming cobblestone streets that remain free from traffic. Nestled between the bustling midtown and downtown regions of Manhattan, the West Village, with some of the highest property values in the world, is a residential respite many New Yorkers aspire to.

The idyllic neighborhood develops a special charm in the winter months as the warmth of tiny European cafes and candlelit restaurants spills out onto the manicured sidewalks coated in snow. It is this charm that I wanted to capture from a unique vantage point high above the buildings on a snowy Saturday night in early January.

A snowstorm had just passed and a clear sky was allowing the moonlight to illuminate the snow-covered rooftops in a sparkling white sheen. Residents, cozy in their homes, socialized behind glowing windows dotting the cityscape. 7th avenue, one of the arterial thoroughfares through the neighborhood, was abuzz with foot traffic as New Yorkers strolled into its famous shops and eateries.

I wanted to create an image that conveyed the warm, quaint energy of this winter scene and respected the neighborhood which, in many New York photographs, plays second fiddle to the adjacent imposing skylines that dwarf it. So, I set up my camera gear and prepared for a composition that placed the radiant 7th avenue directly centered. Furthermore, I planned for a very close crop to ensure that the iconic neighborhood was the sole focus and content of the image.

I then began the process of exposing the dozens of long-exposure images that make up this final VAST photo, the highest resolution fine art photo of the West Village ever created - a superlative artwork befitting an equally superlative neighborhood.
