Stock footage of NYC is often used in many TV shows. Suits, Heroes, CSI, the list goes on and on! Every time I see the beautiful aerial videos of the skyline, the bridges, the towers... Chills. I've said it before, but seriously, there is no city on Earth like it. Search as long and as hard as you want to and you won't find it. It contains magic. There may be sickness, homelessness, pain, hurt, and more. But to me? It still serves as a symbol of home.
It will always be that way. When I fly into Newark and see the Statue of Liberty, my heart warms. Walking through Central Park or around the reservoir on a crisp autumn day is pure perfection, and in the middle of the city. The bustle and hustle, the sirens, the people, the complete flood of population on the sidewalks come 5pm, it's all a part of it. The commute, the taxis, the horns of impatient drivers, all are contrasted with the cute couple walking down the street hand in hand. The picnic the elderly couple is having in the park. The love in dreamy eyes of a first date; there are so many things to be amazed by. I feel blessed to be able to have it, in a sense, right down the road. There are many pairs of eyes that have yet to see the city.
I can't wait to walk those streets again come winter. Rockefeller Center, the tree, the potential for snow, it'll all hit the spot. I'll be there soon, my dear city.
