my new backyard

boat basin  rail lines

I know its been a minute since I contributed to this blog.  I recently moved to the Upper West Side and was showcasing the riverside to a friend.  My motive for this post isn’t to highlight the 79th street boat basin or the elevated tracks, although, for those of you that don’t know about it, it’s a must to pop in a for a drink as there aren’t too many places in NYC that you can drink riverside in a relaxing environment for a reasonable price.

My admiration for this neighborhood  and the gorgeous Spring sunset, inspired me to revisit my passion – sharing my findings of this amazing city.  The architecture long expresses the city’s history that fails to lose its beauty.  It engulfs you, challenging you to imagine another time, long ago where farmers and horses and buggies roamed the streets… oh wait! they still do! in Midtown West!


As usually NYC, you always seem to stop me in my tracks! xo

Thank you, my friend, for your fantastic photos that beautifully capture my new hood.  It would be a sin to take credit for them.
