I love how “Surreal” NYC looks in this photograph that I took on the first day of spring. Not sure what I love more, the pastel sky, the snow covered reservior or the contrast of color between the east and west side of the city.
People often ask how I can live in such a fast paced city for so long (celebrating 30 years) and raise a family and maintain a design business….the answer is easy…”Passion”!
To live in NYC you have to love this city for all it has to offer….I choose to see its beauty through color, architecture, art and its people that love to live here…to me it’s all about “the color chaos and creativity” of my life in NYC.
I know the two words that we all want to say today “Happy Spring” might have to be on hold for at least tomorrow due to a pending snow storm on the east coast today!
Guess we have to remember that it’s only March 20th and we have had our fair share of snow on the east coast through April in past years.
The chaos for NYC will be the crazy commute home tonight as the storm should hit its stride by rush hour, BUT the creativity will come from yet another amazing photo op that NYC has to offer when it’s color is a blanket of fresh white snow!
It’s true….this winter in NYC it has been….shall I say “A bit brutal” with our fair share of snow, ice, hail and freezing temperatures…but looking through my camera lens I choose to see ” The Softer Side” of winter…
Located on the Northeast corner of Central Park at 110 Street and 5th Ave is the Harlem Meer which was built in 1861 and restored between 1983-93.
The word “Meer” is Dutch for lake which is home to The Charles A Dana Discovery Center that was built in a Victorian style to emulate the original Victorian structures of Central Park.
The waterside plaza that sits next to the discovery center is used from mid-June through September for Sunday afternoon performance festivals….and good to know that if you like to fish you can participate in the catch and release program that is a summertime favorite for many in NYC!
