typical is beautiful.

This is typical. Living in this city you can spend as much time looking up to the facades as you can looking at eye level. This picture was taken in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, but quite frankly the interesting characteristics displayed here can be found in like fashion all over town. I just thought I should take a moment to share this with you. My camera was at maximum zoom to capture the intricate work on display here. My complete lack of depth perception tells me that these were really high up and yet still remarkably enjoyable from street level.

are your buildings this beautiful?


About clarissa

I'm a girl from Texas living in New York since October 2010. I fell in love with New York City on a business trip here in April 2009. I had to drag my husband along for the ride at first but just a few hours on his own while I was at the conference and he was completely on board. He began texting me mundane things like the price of milk and the quality of produce so that I could see it wasn't so much different than Austin. What are the chances that after just one week in New York two people would leave with the exact same resolution to one day live there? We did. Just about 18 months later we signed a lease on a new apartment and started a new chapter in our lives. This blog will hopefully give me a chance to document our adventures in New York as well as to share my perspective on the same using photos and stories. enjoy.
