I have a love-hate relationship with New York City. There are days when the glitter of the Empire State falls over my eyes and I look at Park Avenue, the Flat Iron building and bustling streets as though for the first time. On days like those, I sometimes carry my camera with me and walk around the city snapping photos as though I’m a tourist. My eyes grow wide, my walk slows down and New York seems to embrace me in a warm hug.
Then there are days when NYC kicks my butt and the glitter is shaken from my eyes; when missed subways and pushy pedestrians challenge my thoughts of this city. Yet, no matter the day I know that I’m lucky to live in NYC–in a place that holds a certain promise of opportunity and dreaming for many around the world. Perhaps that’s why I was inspired to pull this post together and create these images to show my love to old, New York.
I hope you enjoyed these NYC pins! If there is a destination you would like me to create pins for, share it below! Make sure to follow The Pin the Map Project on Pinterest.
