Photo Friday: Manhattan Skyline
In the urban jungle that is Manhattan, buildings reach as high skyward as the ambitions of its people pounding the pavement 50 floors below. The New York island is for dreamers and high achievers, for Wall Street stockbrokers and Broadway starlets.
I’ll be on that pavement, on the streets of New York, in two weeks. Meanwhile, I thought I’d share some photos of that magnificent Manhattan skyline. These photos were taken in November 2011 from the rooftop of a Chelsea apartment complex, where my sister once lived. It was a beautiful fall morning, and my roommate, who was also visiting the city, and I took a few moments to enjoy the view before our New York morning ritual: bagels smothered in cream cheese at Murray’s Bagels.
