People, regardless where they live, need a happy place. The space where you a clear your mind, share quiet time with friends, cast a line hoping not to catch a fish, or just sit and stare at the sky. On a warm evening in late spring, the New Yorkers in this image have found their happy place along the East River not far from the Brooklyn Bridge. They are relaxed, it’s Friday night and the weekend waits. In the city that never sleeps this is their happy place.
