I Love New York

  9. A fine tribute to the wonder that is NYC on a date that reminds us of both the terror and resilience displayed. Your collection shows much beauty and diversity. That said, I enjoy the city much better in your photographs than actually being there. Although my visits in the past have been exciting the city just overwhelms me. I am not sure I could have made so many great images as you have shared for all the overwhelming input. Maiselesque! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Steve, Maiselesque! I’ll take it, thank you! Big cities aren’t for everyone and can definitely feel overwhelming. Photography feels more charged in some ways but some favorite moments here are the quieter ones from inside taxis or walking on the Hudson. But, getting a crazy shot in Times Square is definitely a thrill! πŸ€— Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. Enjoy your quiet nature moments.

  11. Fantastic window views. NYC at night, that is among the best I’ve seen. The street level scene, on a rainy afternoon, I assume you were in a car. Hope you’re doing well. πŸ™‚

  13. Wonderful pictures, Jane, what a place! The UK consists of two parts, London and the rest. And London is far too much for me, far too big, far too tiring, and I’m sure NY would be far, far more so! πŸ™‚

  14. Jane , I take your amazing captures of NY City as a beautiful composed contribution for September 11th 2011. I love New York City and wish to go back very soon. Among all the images ” The Taxi Driver” is my favorite. Have a great week, Jane

  15. Great album, Jane, I like the rainy day shot a lot, somehow that’s The most evocative for me. If I was accidentally jabbed in the shin with somebody’s umbrella, while someone else jogging by smeared a little mustard from their pretzel on my coat sleeve,I’d almost feel like I was there! ✌️ I miss hearing my granddad tell me when each skyscraper went up, and the family that takes care of those wooden water towers, etc etc

  18. Wonderful images of this iconic city, Jane. New Yorkers are a very special breed indeed. Our son has become one of them and loves going into the city to work. I always find that it has such an energy which rubs off on me whenever I visit. Great post!

  20. Such lovely photos of a city I have yet to visit. I promised my daughter we would go there, but it hasn’t happened yet! Meanwhile I’ll enjoy your marvellous take on the city: especially pleasing is the rainy day shot. The crowd scene is not my thing, though wonderfully captured.

  25. Wow, you’ve really outdone yourself with this set of photos! I always enjoy your images but these are extra special because I too love New York πŸ™‚ I love the way you’ve mixed street and architectural shots to build a picture of the ‘city that never sleeps’. My personal favourites are the taxi driver and rainy afternoon shots πŸ˜€

  38. Rainy afternoon, wonderful image Jane, like the rest. New York minute, the song title, had me wondered. I know that song, not, as I discovered googling it, by Don Henley, but by a company of old socks called The Immediate Family. How so? Well, the co-writer of the tune is Danny Kotchmar, and he is part of The Immediate Family, together with guys like bassist Leland Sklar, Guitarist Waddy Waddell and drummer Russ Kunkel, the musicians backing Jackson Browne, Warren Zevon, James Taylor and numerous other artists back in de seventees and eightees. They made an album, with New York Minute on it, and they have a new album out. This is not an advertisement, mind you, but I thought it might be fun to know for age-peers. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Peter,
      Thank you so much. Glad you like the image. Good detective work! I am big fan of all the above mentioned names beginning with my love of James Taylor to whom all of these musicians are connected. Was very excited when I read about the new album. As an aside, I see Lee Sklar walking his dog near where I live. πŸ€— He’s very friendly.

  40. Hudson Afternoon and the last two are my favorites. The quote makes me laugh because my thoughts about NYC and any other big city are a) a night shot is probably my favorite and b) the more people there the merrier…and the less where I want to be. That New York Minute shot makes me shudder. Waaaaay too many people for me. πŸ™‚ And yes, I have been to NYC a couple of times, enjoyed my time, and was thrilled to leave.

  42. Where’s that love button? πŸ™‚ Thanks for the scroll down memory lane (good one, eh?). I was already enjoying the water towers and rooftops before you selected them out. πŸ™‚ It looks like you were staying on the west side, Chelsea? Ninth Avenue? One building intrigues me – a little right of middle in the 4th photo and at the bottom of the 9th. The one that has a false front at an angle. And that’s NY for you – always something new to see. The people photos are wonderful, too, and the one from the cab. I love the colors and sky in “Old and New” – they’re familiar. The Updike quote is great, so true (but now we know otherwise, don’t we?). You created another timely post. Personally, I’m glad I don’t work downtown anymore – it was tiring to be reminded all the time. It’s good to get some distance. Thank you!!

    • Thanks so much, Lynn. Nice to revisit these…so many great memories and for you, too. Yes, a couple are made from a hotel near Chelsea and some from a hotel in SoHo. Oh yes, I see the building your talking about– looks like a facade was kept… interesting. Felt the love more so after reading all the tributes. Glad you felt compelled to look further! 😊

  45. Your second photograph and several that follow are quite appropriate for today’s date.
    The Oculus really lends itself to abstract compositions.
    Your Rainy Afternoon reminds me of a painting by Childe Hassam:
