Today as I ambled around my neighborhood block, soaking in the warm sun, watching traffic whizzing by, passing the familiar mom & pop shops and bars, it dawned on me that I love this city because I love contrasts.
New York is a city full of contrasts – between nature and industry, between pedestrians and cars, between colors and grays, between harsh winters and boiling summers, between historic buildings and new developments, between people from all walks of life. It’s only when we experience contrasts that we learn to appreciate the value of each object/person/setting’s unique beauty.
How about you? What makes you love your hometown?
