Hello my fellow readers,
If you have been following my blog or my other social media platforms, you are most likely aware of how much I love New York City. Whether it’s because I am an immigrant, who had the opportunity of moving into this incredible city and viewing it from an utterly different perspective than the one of my friends, or it’s because my mother introduced me to the beauty of New York when I was a little girl, New York has always carried a sense of magic in my eyes. No matter the weather, I make an attempt to always go out and see the city, especially if an opportunity presents itself.
In my previous post, I have mentioned that I have been catching up with all friends of mine, yet one thing that I have not brought up is that each friend of mine and I tend to go to familiar places that have previously been explored by us. Of course, New York City is mesmerizing and always has something new to offer, but often, there’s something about coming back to a previously discovered place. Either it’s the nostalgia kicking in, or just a short escape from reality, coming back to a place you and your friend have previously explored and enjoyed is always heartwarming.
My friend, Asha, and I decided to come back to a place through which we wondered when we were concerned about our college applications, through which we discussed how soon she will be leaving town to move into her first year college dorm, through which we walked and talked about our experiences: Central Park.
When it rains in New York, you would witness the biggest crowds of people in the mornings, due to many commuting to work, and in the evening, when those tired, commuter souls are on their way back home. However, when it’s raining and it’s the afternoon, the city and its people tend to hide in small cafes, surrounded by hot cups of coffee and fresh pastries. Thus, when Asha and I began our walk that rainy afternoon, the park was empty. There were four tourists taking photos, yet the park was still a peaceful location. Due to New York being New York, a young photographer asked my friend and I to pose for several of his photos-I suppose it was the “rain series”. The outcome is a set of beautiful photos that I have decided to share on the blog.
New York, even when it rains, it pours, it’s cold and windy, to me, it will always be magical. Whether it’s the residents living their lives, or the architecture and the atmosphere of the city, there’s something about New York that will always find its special place in my heart.
