Afternoon in Manhattan

I love New York City. I love the bustling throngs of people from a thousand different cultures, the gritty labyrinth of train tunnels underneath the streets, soaring stone architecture, the lakes, tall omnivorous trees clawing at a blue sky that spills out over the Atlantic Ocean, Ellis Island, the Brooklyn Bridge and just in the corner a French street band shouting and strumming as lights of skyscrapers, a million headlights flare in a bright operatic backdrop.
