I come to New York City several times a year for trade-shows, to shop stores, visit clients and friends and have great meals. It is in huge contrast to where I live out in the forest of southern Washington state. At home there are no sounds except birds, no lights except stars, few cars, few people and lots of green. New York is the exact opposite… noisy, crazy, dirty, lights, cars, cabs, trucks, bikes and people everywhere. It is a vibrant city full of life though. I love it for short periods of time but it is not for me. Even so, this morning from my 6th story hotel window I saw natures beauty in this city. Taken on my iPhone 3.
