a random holiday

There is no place like [New York], no place with an atom of its glory, pride and exultancy. It lays its hand upon a man’s bowels; he grows drunk with ecstasy; he grows young and full of glory, he feels that he can never die. – Thomas Wolfe
I made this photo before arriving into the city. NYC city looks grand from the bridge. I stayed in Roosevelt island this time, and everyday I could see Manhattan view from the window. This was a normal day before sunset.
I had a really relax holiday, catching up with friends, having good food and experiencing the city. I caught the first snow in the city, end of October. It was a bit disappointed I only saw one day of sunshine. However, it was also good to feel winter, which I could never get in Singapore.
New York city is huge. Though I stayed here before, I feel this city is still unfamiliar to me. It is like a maze. Standing on the street, you see people walking from different directions and going to different places.
I’ve been living in a dream about you
And now I know you were all I ever wanted on my mind
And if I never see
My own reality
Well, I’m okay to leave it all behind
