Summer at last in NYC

Today was rainy but it’s Summer at last in the city. Days are longer, people are less huddled on the streets and the buildings of Manhattan get to show themselves off dazzling those who have the leisure to look up.

Flowers have bloomed in many places even through the concrete.

Colour has returned to people’s dresses from the standard black coats which is a soothing sight for sore eyes. The readers of books have come out from their cubby holes to read under the trees.

The parks are dotted with children and dogs and the skies are dotted with kites and the rivers are dotted with colourful sailboats and carousing boats with booming music. The food stands are an olfactory treat for those who pass by.

  1. I’ve just got back from New York, we had two gloriously beautiful days and two iffy ones but it was great anyway. Your first photo is of my favourite building, the tower that looks like it’s been crumpled in someone’s hand!

  2. Oh, now I’m homesick! It’s hard to describe to people how beautiful the city can be in the spring…I lived half a block from Central Park and had an office near City Hall – loved all the flowers about this time of year. Thanks so much for posting these lovely photos.
