Most cities have their cliche’ed images, but the view of the home-towner shows us something intimate that we might miss otherwise.

My hometown of New York is pretty well photographed. Still, I’ve dug a little rut of routine and I love watching the city from here, me and the city changing together. Despite it’s undeniable urban grit, New York City is constantly interacting with the elements. That is when I find the city at its most beautiful.

NYC is famous for its theaters, and they are in full swing during these inhospitable winter months. My favorite is the MET opera, but the American Ballet isn’t too shabby.

It’s a remarkable city, for it’s frantic urban features, but also for the calm spaces that I find at every turn. There are many wonderful parks, but, predictably, my favorite is Central Park. I can’t wait for those magnolias to bloom again!

  1. I’ve only visited the Met once, to see ‘Carmen’ – it was a dream on my bucket list. Nowadays, I go to theaters to see Met operas in HD. Cheaper by far, and more in line with my budget!
