Hudson Yards is being planned to be “Tomorrow’s City Today”. “Hudson

Yards represents the 21st century, and Battery Park City represents the end of the

20th century,” said Mitchell L. Moss, a professor of urban policy and planning at

New York University. “They are just totally different.” It will become the cultural

center of Manhattan’s New West Side. A template for the future of cities, this new

neighborhood which has not only changed the impression of New York towards

the world, but also the way of how New York think about the world. It has a

special and good location, makes it will be the best developed cultural, business

and supervise tourism exchange. However, why this area was chosen with such

future proposals.

Hudson Yards is a 28-acre mixed-use development on Manhattan’s far West

Side, bound by 34 th and 30 th street to the north and south, and by Tenth Avenue and

the West Side Highway to the east and west. This area is divided into two parts.

The first phase, Eastern Yard, will be eight new buildings including residential and

commercial skyscrapers, public gardens, a massive shopping mall, and the Shed

cultural center. The Western Yard, on the other hand, will have an additional

residential, office, and retail space, as well as elementary school. After 12 years of

planning and six of construction, Hudson Yards is composted by 2025,



Hudson Yards will be the core of Manhattan’s finical, top elites, shopping

gathering, and residences of New West Side, as well as the template for the future

of cities. The reason why it has the advantages of being the most prosperous area

in the future is about its profound history, wide undeveloped space, and the

convenient location. A landmark cannot be made in one day.




The Hudson Yards is currently being transformed into the Hudson Yards

megaproject has functioned as many things in the city’s 400-year history, this area

before trains ran alongside pedestrian and other traffic, frequently leading to

carnage and the nickname “Death Avenue.” The grade-level tracks were replaced

by the freight-carrying High Line in the 1930s. The interesting design Mayor

George Opdyke cited New Yorkers’ propensity to jaywalk as a reason to keep the

train cars together and persons desirous of crossing a railroad track will wait for

basketball film



It was just a normal day in New York City, I was busy on my daily work, with my laptop, suddenly I fell into sleep. It is a Dream: When I was in high school, I play basketball every day in my school with my friend. Back then I love basketball, watch NBA game with my friend every night, Basketball was my everything at high school. All the memories come up to my mind. I feel I should make some change。 So I waked up. Right now I am at college in New York Manhattan. There is too much thing going on in the city. It made me start to forget to lose more and more passion for basketball. My body is getting fat, my health is going down. My life becoming new York life, unhealthy life. Playing a video game, eat snacks and sleep a lot, using lots of computers. Even life is better, the apartment is better but my heart is becoming empty.

I hear my friend knock on my door. He passes me the ball, I decide to find the passion back on the court.


I used a lot of close-ups to express the emotions of the picture, and there are also many long shots to let the audience feel the charm of the scene.  The lens of the basketball, the lens of the running, the lens of the eyes, the lens that touches the high, and the various details that can touch the heart.  Use these details to let the audience feel the emotions I want to express. My love for basketball, my thoughts about the past, and the tiredness of my life are in these pictures.  And I use black and white to distinguish between the present and the past, memories.
