Intense, raw, iconic. The city of cities.
New York City put me in a state of wonder and awe, a surprise throwback to my Yosemite experience. Yosemite, that place that nearly broke my neck urging me to look up ever higher and ever farther.
But: This is a modern city. How can buildings be so tall, and how are there so many of them? What's with the retro look? Who decided to put more buildings on top of the tall ones? These questions fostered in my head and I repeatedly reminded myself that all this was in fact human-made. My eyes began to water.
