New York City Skyline at Sunset on a Stormy Evening

—-

The sky was on fire that night

as the sun rode down towards the horizon

leaving a trail of glowing embers in its wake.

And our hearts were beating

to the rhythm of the skyline:

heart beats that traveled

up and down the 

rising crescendos and diminuendos

of  the tops of skyscrapers 

resting finally

on the trailed off sentences

we uttered 

as our lips met.

This is an older photograph of the New York City skyline during one of the most spectacular sunsets I have seen in the city. You can tell it is an older skyline photo due to the state of 1 World Trade Center which was in its infancy stages. It is interesting how architecture can date an image particularly when your subject matter is one of the most evolving and popular skylines in the world. 

Prior to taking this photograph, I had gotten caught in a torrential downpour while walking across the Brooklyn Bridge. As soon as I crossed the bridge, the rain stopped and the skies opened in a tremendously dramatic fashion to reveal a decidedly fiery sunset with a tiny hole in the clouds perfect enough for a plane to traverse. It was one of the most perfect moments.

New York City sunset overlooking the Brooklyn Bridge.—-

There is a point every evening  

when the sun rains its light down 

leaving a trail of 

sun puddles

in its wake:

tiny golden slivers

of the day’s 

memory

that well-up

in the gleam

of the city’s eye.

New York City skyscrapers at sunset.—-

New York City sunsets are songs.

They remind you of all of the times 

you ran with open arms 

into a city that embraced you back 

on the whisper of a breeze 

in a skyline reflected in glistening eyes 

wide with hope. 

And everyday 

carries the promise 

of a new song.

This image was taken from the top of Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) with the Sony A99 during an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The view is of the skyscrapers and rooftops of the midtown Manhattan skyline looking south including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and 1 World Trade Center.

New York City sunset over the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan.—-I never really get tired of this view.  

I know I have expressed that sentiment many times but it’s absolutely true. There’s something incredibly breathtaking that occurs when you are above the rooftops of the city. It’s as if the city shrinks below a vast sky in a huge universe and everything that once seemed impossible seems effortless and within the realm of possibility.  

It’s so easy to forget that sort of thing when you live in a large city like New York City. When you are in the thick of it all, it can feel like the you are alone in a never-ending maze of cavernous streets as everyone else’s dreams and hopes fly past you at the speed of light. But when you take yourself out from the middle of everything and change your perspective, it’s as if the city holds its arms out to you beckoning you to come back and put your own dreams out there so they can spread their wings and fly up to the sky towards the horizon leaving a trail of hope in their path.

The view is looking south towards One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower and 1 WTC) and the skyscrapers of the Financial District.
