Europe Photo Essays

City in Motion

Photo Essay by Emily Hersh, NUin

New York may be the city that never sleeps, but once Berlin awakens from its slumber, it is in constant motion. The hustle and bustle is real, people at all times of the day and night rushing around by foot, bicycle, subway, or car. Throughout all my travels to other cities in Europe during my time in NUin, I’d never encountered a place that was as fast-paced as Berlin. Here are a few places where you can catch a glimpse of the daily commotion.
