When a naturally busy city gets the 'abandoned' artistic treatment, one can not help but wonder the appearance of such photos; the 'New York in Black' series by Christophe Jacrot captures the dismal affect of a city only bearing the existence of street lights and archaic buildings. From capturing the steaming air ducts of the city streets to the blaring head lamps of an abandon car, the photo series captures a surprising number of suppressed New York City areas.

With talk of the impending apocalypse on December 21, 2012 this photoshoot beautifully showcases what New York City will look like once the people have disappeared from the metropolitan area. Of course this is a stunning rendition of the apocalyptic thought.
