Magnifying the Bombastic City

We have now entered our fourth and final week here in New York.  This city is so vast, so diverse, so dynamic.  It is layer upon layer of people, history, culture, art, cuisine, fashion, industry, transportation, recreation, nature and on and on.  Such a big, bombastic city on the surface, but let's go deeper, look a little closer at the million tiny details that mesh together to make New York, well...New York.

These are some shots from today...(please click on the picture to enlarge).

There is so much more that I want to share with you.  Yesterday's ferry ride, our favorite haunts for food, tips for traveling with kids, our hiking adventures, but I just felt the need today to slow down and take in all the details, smell the roses, see the forest for the trees, and all that jazz.
