NY Through the Lens - New York City Photography

New York City - Above Chinatown - Monroe Street

—-

It happens like this:

You squint your eyes open

after walking on clouds in last night’s dreams

and the city comes into view:

a vast glistening kingdom built on the shoulders of despair and joy.

As the city comes into focus slowly,

you shut your eyes abruptly

sending up every wish that rests on the tip of your tongue

soaring on the barest whisper of a breeze

up towards the sky.

And then you blink your eyes open

hoping none of this

was in vain.

It wasn’t.

This is a view above Monroe Street in Chinatown.   

The neighborhood is also known as Two Bridges due to its proximity to the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge.
