If I had to sum up what makes me the most happy about living in New York City, I’d say I love…
That walking is always a part of my day
That the views are never boring!
Yesterday after 5 hours of orchestra rehearsals at the DiMenna Center, I decided to walk home. With my viola strapped to my back and my camera in hand, I set off on the 60-block trek.
A few moments later I spotted Project Runway All-Stars/Season 1 designer (and inimitable character) Austen Scarlett.
(If he hadn’t been walking so fast in the opposite direction, I would have screwed up my courage to ask him to pose for the shot.)
A few blocks later, this wonderful patchwork of varied architectural styles caught my eye.
Meanwhile, the Chrysler Building seems to be perpetually photogenic. Today was no different!
I was also intrigued by the mish-mash of old and new on this busy street corner.
(The Celtic Pub merited it’s own shot.)
As a fitting bookend to my journey, I passed by this film crew filming outside a brownstone on the Upper West Side. They were busy shooting takes for the upcoming ABC Pilot, Murder in Manhattan, starring Annie Potts.
(I can’t be sure, but it sure looks like the woman below is Bridget Regan, who will be playing the character Lex in the show.)
Just another day of life in Manhattan!
