Look Up. Up! Up!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Admiring the architecture here is a daily habit of probably every New Yorker that walks through the Manhattan streets.  The density, both horizontal and vertical, of this city is overwhelming.  I've been to many cities in the world and nothing quite describes concrete jungle as well as Manhattan.  Next time you walk around, stop and stare up.  You will be surprised how buildings change based on location and how intricate everything is.

Slanted buildings around Midtown East

Downtown New York.  I wonder how old this building is.  Love the red.

Walking home.  I can see my building from here!

Today I remember all the individuals we lost in 9/11.  No one will ever take the resilience of New York away.


  1. Oh my, these are beautiful pictures of the buildings and its intricate architecture. I can't believe I've never visited NY before. But I will definitely gawk at them, so charming. You're so lucky to see them everyday!

  2. I love the second picture! I've never been to New York but hopefully I can make it there someday soon! And when I do, I will be sure to admire all of the lovely, amazing architecture. I studied architecture in school so it is always a highlight of any trip I make!

  3. You did a wonderful job with these photos! Have a wonderful weekend :)

  4. Beautiful pictures. My heart goes out to all the individual lost in the incident, may they find peace at where they are now.
