New York City Has Trees?!

By Thursday, June 27, 2013 0 Permalink

When I went to put the photos we took from our trip to New York City on my computer I was surprised by how few actually came out. Dan had deleted a lot of blurry ones but even the ones I uploaded weren’t as good. I blame the weather or the fast driving. We weren’t able to get as many photos as we would have liked but then we only saw such a small part of the city.

The George Washington Bridge from the car as we zoomed through some green area that I didn’t think existed in New York. I wish I could say I was kidding but I didn’t realize there was so much green space in the city. I’m so naive.

This is my I-really-don’t-want-the-skies-to-open-up-and-soak-me-because-I-did-not-dress-for-a-downpour face. Thankfully, the skies did not open up until much later, but at this point I knew a cropped jacket wasn’t going to save me from getting drenched by the fat rain drops they have over there on the East Coast.

Marble sarcophagus with the Triumph of Dionysos and the Seasons at The Metropolitan Museum of Art – Looking at this makes me want to go back to The Met and just chill out. For some reason Dan thought I didn’t like museums which is absolute bs. I love museums and can spend hours, like we did, just walking around and around and trying to see everything. This was a favorite. The detail is insane.

Ah…the inside of The Met. So pretty.

Even though we knew we wouldn’t get a very good look of it because of the rain, Dan and I wanted to drive around the Freedom Tower. There was a lot of fog covering the top of it so I’m surprised I even got this decent of a shot. It was eerie. The whole thing. And maybe it’s because it was at night or that the area was so quiet except for the rain. The building itself is impressive but you can’t really see how impressive it is until you look up from underneath it. The surrounding area is still blocked off and there’s rubble from all the construction going on. Neither of us had ever been down to Ground Zero before and if you haven’t, you should. I’m horrible at expressing my feelings on things that are bigger than me but all of it felt very surreal, even now.
