New York City: Billboards - Big Is Beautiful

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York City is awesome. As I visited the metropolis the first time I was stunned by the skyscrapers, by the traffic, the noise - and the huge billboards.

Advertising is the fundament of business and seems to be the elixir of such a capitalistic place. No wonder, that companies are investing huge sums to be visible here, even when the New Yorkers seem not to notice.

Anyway the huge photographic displays, which are frequently displaced by new advertisements, shape the city. Billboards are the makeup on New York City`s face. You could see them almost everywhere in Manhattan and often they are sexy and funny.

Here a collection of my favorites from the recent 3 years. Enjoy.
