World Traveler: Paris vs New York

Graphic designer Vahram Muratyan has come up with a wonderful art project — Paris vs New York: A Tally of Two Cities. And boy, does he hit the nail on the head. The parallels he discovers make me laugh, and I especially love “La Romantique” with Amelie and Carrie, two of my personal romantic heroines. (Carrie from the show, not the movies. Definitely not the movies.) The project reaffirms what makes these two cities icons in themselves, and why “Paris” and “New York” have become adjectives to describe different levels of chic and fabulous over the past few years. Check out the rest of the prints here.
