And the sun sets on another beautiful day in New York City…
It is nearing that time again (although it certainly doesn’t feel like it right now)…
The start of pitchers and catchers means spring then SUMMER!!! Sunshine, no more slush and being outdoors without 3 layers of clothing!
The dog is ready for sunshine too…
I don’t know if it was always like this, but I think that February is the height of winter in NYC. Or maybe it is just the point at which I am done being cold and ready to expose my skin to sunlight again. Thankfully most of us can stay warm indoors… its amazing how the “wildlife” (if you want to refer to overly friendly pigeons as that) have adapted to city life. Check out these pigeons using a subway grate as heating source. Gotta say maybe they’re more evolved than we think….
It seems like a fleeting memory but it was warm enough, not too long, that strolling along the water was a good idea. However right now it would be beautiful it would undoubtedly be too cold!
So in memory of the not too distant warm weather behind us (and in our future).. enjoy these photos from a walk through Inwood Hill Park this past fall.
There is something humbling about flying into New York City and seeing the never-ending buildings that blanket all the land in sight. It turns magical when it is dark and all you see is lights as far as the eye can see. It truly makes you realize the vast amounts of people in such a concentrated area and all that entails for a society, city and a lifestyle. However, for a far more simplistic take on the view, it also creates a pretty nice photograph….
See you in 2013!
Part about what I love about New York City is all the little pockets of different worlds you can find within it. One of these places where you feel like you’ve stepped into another time and place is in Corona, Queens. Here we stumbled upon a game of bocce being played by Italians and being observed by, what appeared to be, fans and passerby’s alike.
