New York City - Night - Lower East Side - Orchard Street

There is nothing like night in New York City.

It’s in the way the lights shine, diffracted and star-shaped.

It’s in the way the buildings glisten like lighthouses for the lost and found.

And it’s in the way the chatter of taxi cabs and cars whiz past the ears like a never-ending dissonant lullaby.

The energy never changes. 

It’s as if it is impossible for the city’s energy to change and shift. 

As if that frenetic energy that propels us forward through the night was there all along, 

and the city sprung up around it with open arms,

a long-lost lover looking for its muse.

New York City: Skyline and Empire State Building

Late afternoon light is a ghost.

It grazes eyelashes

and pours its stark light

over skyscrapers

like a battle-worn soul

asserting its presence

over the shadows.

New York City: Night

At night 

the city stars 

shine like supernovas  

in a vast 

urban universe.

And in the hours 

just before midnight 

during muffled increments 

of time 

when the city’s heart 

palpitates in time 

to the distant lullaby 

of the day’s remains 

dreams sleepwalk 

their way

through the 

alleys and streets.

New York City doesn’t have many alleys.This is an alley in lower Manhattan. This was taken on a quiet night with my Sony A99. 

I love the moments that occur when night falls and dreams roam the streets.

New York City - Night - Times Square from Above

At night, 

while we soar

through the streets,

flying past buildings,

navigating through

alleys below,

the city soars

along with us,

its neon lights

pulsating to 

the night’s 

heartbeat,

streets winding

like synapses

as we 

dance in

each other’s

dreamscapes,

This is a 2.5 second long exposure taken with my Sony A7R while I was high above Times Square at midnight one night. Truly a breathtaking view.
