West 43rd Street
I've walked these streets for 3+ years, lived in 4 Manhattan addresses (Greenwich Village, Union Square, Gramercy, & Little Italy), and I still can't help but pause and gasp at the sight. Below, cars crawled up 5th avenue like ants; city lights flickered like burning candles under the darkened sky; and the Washington Square Park fountain seemed small enough to fit in the palm of my hand.
I love how no matter how large and busy the city seems, New York still feels so intimate. The photographer of these photos Joseph O. Holmes phrases the sentiment well: "I trust my heart and I wrap myself around these streets like I'm in love"...
