Listening to 21 by Adele, her voice always creates this longing in me, strangely a perfect soundtrack for sorting through hundreds of NY photos. Hard to be uninspired in such a fluid city where everything is in constant motion. Modern to gritty architecture, innovative food, flashing lights. I just put up a few of my favorite pictures.
Random memories.. The last night we made a quick trip to Times Square (I'm not a fan of touristy activities but figure we owed it to the concrete jungle to go) and popped out of the subway to thousands of neon lights flooding the darkness all around and for an instant everything was extraordinarily still, hard to even explain. Then there's (crazy) people watching on the subway that makes my mind wander all over.. The streets serving as a canvas for graffiti art. Fun molecular gastronomy dinner at wd-50, creeping on Chef Wylie Dufresne whenever he popped out of the kitchen. Walking in Nolita wondering how life would be in one of those tiny apartments with a cast iron fire escape outside my window. A week with lots of eating, shopping, and dreaming.
