The Diamond District

New York is such an inspiring place for a photographer. I was walking around in the Diamond District the other day, and started shooting. The Diamond District is really just one block (47th street between 5th and 6th Ave) full of jewelry stores. A big business in New York City that pays well too if you are a skilled worker. According to an organization representing the district : diamond cutters and polishers are getting old and there is space in the business for newcomers. A good diamond cutter or polisher can make up to $300 000 annually. Not bad.

Here is a map of the Diamond District in New York and below some pictures of people there.
