When one thinks of the stereotypical "American" life, images of Suburbia, of small homes with white picket fences, immediately come to mind. But beyond the stereotype is the lived experience of millions of Americans, who have grown up in cities across the country, and indeed, the world. 

If you are one of these millions, and have lived at least some of your life in a high-rise building, then you can be of use to the New York Times' new Op-Docs series. This summer they will create four short documentaries, directed by the filmmaker Katerina Cizek, exploring "the history and future of high-rise buildings and their relationship to issues of equity, segregation and social responsibility in cities around the world." The fourth film will consist entirely of images sent by you, the public.

If you have an image (digital or a scanned still) that tells a story about your experience living in or around vertical housing, you can submit it to The New York Times here - just make sure to do it before April 15th.
