NY winter pictures

New York is, of course, in our collective imagination, almost the very definition of a city. However, perhaps in a quest to somehow escape it while I also get to know it, I often find myself drawn to its edges, surrounded by sky and water, with tree branches and birds in my photo frame. That’s one of the many paradoxes, and the beauty, of New York. The density and ultimate artificiality of neon-light times square are only blocks away from the open views of the hudson river park.

So, for those who need a bit of an escape, here are a few pictures from walks on the West Side

I like how the water tanks create interesting shapes and resonate with other buildings. One early (snowy) morning picture, and one nightfall picture.
