Taking It to the Streets

You’ll meet many people, 

just like me…

on life’s busy streets.

If you have never had the opportunity to walk the streets of New York City, allow me to take you there. The steps of those who walk in front and behind you are just as unique and different as yours.  Diversity lives here. Extraordinary buildings and structures pierce the sky. Street vendors, musicians, restaurants and taxi cabs are on every corner and everywhere in between. Cell phones, Starbucks and a mix of voices blend into the background of constant motion. A few feet away, you may see the city’s finest N.Y.P.D. mounted on their beautiful horse. Times Square is absolutely gorgeous at night with its neon lights. NYC is a melting pot of all races, religion, art, tradition, theater, music and never-ending street mazes. I could go on but I will leave the rest to your imagination.

It’s been three years since I’ve been to this beautiful city and, yes… I feel a strong desire to walk the streets again.   The energy and excitement of the fast pace leaves me wanting to explore the city that never sleeps.

  1. We spent our 5oth wedding anniversary there, there’s no place like it, very nice pictures.

    • Thanks so much! We visited there three years ago for our anniversary also. Our anniversary is in March and was able to attend their St. Patrick’s Day Parade a few years back. I enjoy my visits to NYC. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! 😃 And congrats on 50 years! Amazing accomplishment these days.

  2. Beautiful photos Laura! I am actually living near NYC (on the Jersey side) but I love going to the city to take photos. Yours are way better than mine so I must keep practicing! I love the one of Times Square the best (were you on the stadium seats when you took the shot?). It just captures the city’s heartbeat so well. Keep clicking! 🙂

    • Thank you for the compliment, Kimberly, but I’m sure you have some amazing shots from NYC. Yes, I was standing on the stadium seats. I like sitting there and just watching people go by. They tell me stories and I try to capture it in my photos. 🙂

  3. Nice photos! I enjoyed them. I especially like the “left of the Brooklyn Bridge” — the way all the strips of railing, road, and buildings trail off into the distance side by side.

    • I loved this one, too. The railing tells so much and I was in just the right spot while walking to notice it. Thanks for your encouraging comments. 🙂

  4. Yes, we are so busy. And just think you may have walked right past a neighbor who could have been a life-long friend. A recess on a park bench might pay off. Meanwhile, I don’t have time . . .

    • Thanks so much, Oneta. My life is busy but nothing like the fast pace of NYC! I think that’s why it’s so appealing to me when I visit. It’s everything I am not. I like park benches! 🙂

    • Thanks! No, sorry to say we didn’t. But we did eat at Frankie and Johnnie’s Strakhouse. It was excellent. Also enjoyed a place called Carmine’s. So many amazing restaurants. I did eat a hot dog from a street vendor. Not as good as I’d hoped. 😬
