Man of the Match…

Jack Harrison

The winger always looked like the most likely source of a goal to break the deadlock and he delivered it in fine style with a crashing finish under Blake after a clever run around the back of the Philadelphia defense.

It wasn’t just his goal which caught the eye on the night – he was a constant menace to the Union backline, slaloming through challenges and exchanging passes with teammates throughout the contest.

What’s Next?

NYCFC return to Yankee Stadium on Sunday, April 23, 2017, where they will take on Orlando City at 1.30pm at YANKEE STADIUM

A Perfect Match: The Canon 11-24mm f/4 Lens and the Newest NYC Subway Station


In what was a somewhat passed-right-through part of Manhattan, a new “neighborhood” is emerging and at its heart is a transportation link. Nothing new, really, for the City of New York—neighborhoods have always followed the availability of transportation. From the ferries and then bridges that connected Brooklyn to Manhattan, to the growth of The Bronx when the IRT arrived; this is just the way it is. And to be sure, this new part of town is not a pastoral neighborhood-to-be, but its hustle will never become a bustle without the new Hudson Yards subway stop.
