New York City alley. Lower East Side.

When I was younger, I thought that New York City was teeming with alleys and narrow streets fueled by an over-active imagination and a predilection for film noir cityscapes. I wanted to believe that New York City harbored the best and brightest of in-between places and worn out spaces. The truth is that while New York City does have alleys, they are a pretty rare sight. Perhaps that is why I am so drawn to the ones that do exist.

Autumn. New York City. Above Union Square

On cloudy days in autumn, the trees stick out from the ground below like paintbrushes heavy with memories of the sun’s embrace.

And the city, weary in preparation of shorter days, clamors to hold onto every last bit of color and light.

I love this view of Union Square Park looking towards the Empire State Building and the beautiful skyscrapers in midtown Manhattan. It’s particularly gorgeous in the autumn when the trees change color before descending gracefully to the ground.

The Flatiron Building rising from the shadows. New York City.

Out of the shadows, the city rises proudly into the sunlight that casts its glow on the structures borne out of the aspirations and hopes of urban dreamers.

Sunset view from the High Line. Chelsea, New York City.

In the evening when the sun slides along the buildings and shadows glide along the streets, the city lingers longingly in the last few moments of sunlit bliss as urban wanderers slow dance to the sun’s daily adagio.
