HP5 or Tri-X is fine. I usually shoot during the day so I often use slower film - 100 or 125 - but I really like Tri-X in NY.
In 25+ years of shooting in the street in NYC Iíve never been yelled at or called a tourist by anyone (what kind of trouble are you getting yourself into, Cal?
). The worst Iíve ever encountered is the occasional sideways glance.
L must admit l am really excited about visiting new york
