I lived in New York City from 2013 through 2015. These are some of my favorite photos I took during my time there.
The city orbits around eight million
centers of the universe
and turns around the golden clock
at the still point of this place.
Lift up your eyes from the moving hive
and you will see time circling
under a vault of stars and know
just when and where you are.
– Grand Central by Billy Collins
The ceiling at Grand Central Station is beautiful indeed - and easy to miss. Next time you’re there, take a break to admire it.
SantaCon is quite an event. From wikipedia:
…SantaCon had evolved from “joyful performance art” that originated in San Francisco to a “reviled bar crawl” of drunken brawling, vandalism, public urination and disorder in New York City and elsewhere, resulting in fierce community resistance and disavowals from the originators of the event.
