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 New York City skyline and the Flatiron Building from above. Midtown.

From above, the Flatiron Building (in the middle of this photo) looks like a tiny little lego piece: one piece in a set of thousands that make up all the toy buildings in midtown Manhattan. 

Still going through the hundreds of photos I took a few weeks back from the top of the Empire State Building. It was such a beautiful day and the sun created the most beautiful shadows that lined the streets below. Hopefully, in a few weeks I will start posting my regular photography from that day but for now here is a phone photo. :)

New York by Gehry in black and white. Financial District, New York City. 

This is one of my favorite ‘newer’ New York City skyscrapers. It is located in the Financial District at 8 Spruce Street. There is just something extraordinarily grandiose about New York by Gehry (designed by Frank Gehry). It’s the tallest residential skyscraper in North America currently standing at 76 stories high.

When you stand at its base, it’s as if its top scrapes delicately across the surface of the sky.
