I chose this photo of Times Square. I took this during my first real visit to New York City - as opposed to just traveling through the city. This was the the last day of my visit, which was my favorite day. My friends, who live in NY, and I just spent hours walking around. That's really the best way to see just about any place, I think.
After living on a relatively small island for the past 25 years, the city was almost overwhelming. So many people bustling about, brilliant colors and flashing lights everywhere. Street vendors and sightseers, people rushing back to work from lunch breaks, taxi drivers weaving all over the place...and me, no doubt with a slightly confused look on my face, just taking it all in.
It was amazing!
