The last 5 days I’ve been playing tour guide of my favorite city in the US – New York City. My old home still holds a very special place in my heart, especially for New Years. My 15 year old niece has traveled with me to NYC for the first time and I’ve been putting all of my effort into showing her the time of her life this week. She lives in Nebraska and hadn’t yet been to a big metropolis like NYC, so I felt a duty to show her what life in the big, artistic, bustling city of New York was like.
It has been a treat to see her experience NYC for the first time; with new eyes on things that are familiar to me. We have rode the subway and walked all over the city to see Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum, China Town, Times Square, Chelsea Market, Little Italy, SoHo, Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Station, High Line Park, Rockefellar Christmas Tree, 5th Ave. Shops, MoMA, attended a show, and even took a ride over to Hoboken NJ to see Carlos Bakery. We have eaten everything in sight, and have nursed our aching feet. And I even found a little time to take a few pictures of some of my favorite sites in NYC.
For this last post of 2011, you get some of my abstract photos from my week in New York City, for the New Year, with the new eyes of my niece.
