Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Hewes Street.—-

With layers of dirt and paint under our nails from constantly peeling back the layers of this city, it’s not the stars we seek.

It’s the light that seeps through…

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.

Hurricane Sandy debris on Delancey Street on Monday morning. Lower East Side, New York City. 

Tons of debris seen earlier this morning looking down Delancey Street on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. The wind was pretty harsh at that time and it’s even more brutal now. A huge wind gust just literally shook my entire apartment (I live on the 5th floor of a very, very old walk-up).

Just got a robo-call from Con Ed saying that power may be shut off here on the Lower East Side. If I don’t update again for a while, that’s why. Stay safe all! 

In case you missed my earlier post, you can catch me on my Twitter mainly (unless the power goes totally out everywhere) until the middle of this week unless I have to go out for some completely insane reason.
