Maybe you're not from New York City. Maybe you're not familiar with our daily grinds, our day to day. Maybe you fantasize that one day you too will live and work here and imagine that it will be wonderful - to be able to earn your living and play in the comfortable shadows cast by the skyscrapers and moneymaking giants. You would learn soon enough that it is great. I never get tired of looking at the cityscape as my elevated train descends into the tunnel that connects Queens to isle of Manhattan under the East River. You would also learn that life here is fast and hard as well as fun and rewarding.
Here are some more pictures from a New Yorker's daily landscape.
