i can still see the borough, i can still see the bridge

my favourite thing about new york city.
manhattan is an orgy of motion, vivacious and fluid, satiated with concrete and urban artwork. like exuberant brushstrokes on a grid-pattern canvas, miniscule demeures are built one above the other, stories high, ready to topple at any given moment.
life in the city is hard-won, and the maneuvres leading to success are often risky and underestimated, but the final product, the marriage of metropolitan bliss and laid-back lifestyle, is bewitching.

new york has been pigeonholed as the city that never sleeps, but i can't help but disagree. sure, new york will go a few nights without any shut-eye, choosing instead to blast thunderous music nights on end, but when the city does choose to sit back & relax ... that's when the magic happens. that's when it finds time to dream.

And i agree about New York... in a way, i always think of the city as a living, breathing person
