The City that Never Sleeps

New York City is sometimes referred to as "The City That Never Sleeps"
due to its extensive 24 hour subway system and
constant bustling of traffic and people

If you are ever there, try to go to Times Square and the Empire
State Building after dark. It is an awesome sight.

As we walk up the street, straight ahead looms
the Empire State Building.
My daughter and I enter and get the elevator
up 86 floors.

As we step out and look over we both say "Wow"
in unison

It was an amazing sight to see all the millions of lights

The tall buildings

The water with its reflections

The Bridges

The later it got the more crowded the streets
seemed to get.

There's nothing to compare to the streets of NYC
Unless you are a country girl like me, and then
you would rather be walking barefoot in the grass
or hiking through the colored leaves
or playing in a stream somewhere looking for
birds and beasts to photograph.
Next post will be back to the earthly things I love.

To God be the Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done.

Those night photos were spectacular! I have never been there but you have given me a good feeling of what it would be like!

Great pictures that give a glimpse of New York at night.The pictures are lovely,but something tells me that I would rather be out looking for birds or flowers to photograph.

Thank you so much for all your comments. I too, like most of you am a 'Country' girl and would much rather be birding, or walking in the woods or along a stream. NY is nice to visit but I would never want to live there.
