New York City Skyline and Queensboro Bridge at Dusk

There is something so magical about dusk in New York City. 

After the sun sets for the evening, the city is a symphony of lights reaching their crescendo at the same time as the night pulls itself over the rooftops and skyscrapers below. 

And if you squint just a little, 

all of the lights twinkle 

like fireflies in an urban forest.

This is a 15 second exposure that I took with my Sony A99 while standing on the roof of Z Hotel in Long Island City, Queens. The rooftops of Long Island City sit in the foreground. To the right is the Queensboro Bridge (also known as the 59th Street Bridge, and the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge). The skyline of midtown Manhattan including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building sit in the distance.

Those lights - 

they shine

like stars

that twinkle

into existence

every night

reminding you

of all the times

you wished 

for stars

to populate

the skies

in your dreams

when there was

only darkness

and faint

impressions

of yesterday’s 

light.

But today,

today -

they shine

brightly,

tiny universes

unto themselves

reminding you

that hope

is infinite

and dreams

are limitless.

New York City - The Brooklyn Bridge

—-



On hazy summer afternoons when dusk pulls its soft purple veil over the city, the skyline softens in the dreamy-eyed gaze of the clouds


And as light slides from the sky making its way over steel, wood and concrete towards the disintegrating horizon, bridges and skyscrapers melt with the sun into the evening.

New York City -  Skyline at Dusk

—-


There is something really extraordinary about the shift between day and night in New York City. 

It’s gradual and at the same time abrupt in its magnitude. 

The lights on the skyscrapers flicker on as the night sky pulls itself over the city while the sun is still dancing with the horizon. 

It’s this sort of in-between time that seems to suit a city full of people who feed off the frenetic energy and constant shifts that occur on a momentary basis. 

New York City rarely dwells in absolutes. 

Its landscape and structures only seem to remain still.

This is a view from the Top of the Rock (also known as 30 Rock and the top of Rockefeller Center) taken with the Sony A99. The skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan sit in the foreground leading up to the Empire State Building and further in the distance sits the Freedom Tower and lower Manhattan.
