They say New York is at its best in autumn. And with that bright, blue skies, wonderfully crisp air, and leaves glowing in brilliant shades of red, orange, and yellow, who could argue?

Autumn in the East Village

During this time of year, the city’s cultural calendar is packed with festivals and Broadway openings, farmers’ markets are bursting with apples of every color and flavor, and storefronts are decked out with pumpkins and spooky Halloween décor. The trees in Central Park are ablaze in golden yellows and fiery reds, and the entire city turns into a fall wonderland.

My today’s post proposes a visual journey around New York City in autumn, as seen through the eyes of local author and photographer Vivienne Gucwa, which is not only one of my favorite photographers, but also one of my favorite people. The images below are a selection from her wonderful portfolio and I’m sure they’ll leave you hungry for more. If so, I would highly recommend her inspiring photography book NY Through The Lens, which I find a joy to read and browse again and again.

For more inspirational captures of New York City, make sure to visit Vivienne Gucwa’s beloved Tumblr blog NY Through The Lens, where she posts regularly.
