Images By Michael just returned from an intense 4 day weekend in New York City. As a Chicago native, I’ve never been intimidated by the “big city”, and I’ll admit, the energy is exciting, but, I guess the years are creeping up on me, because I found it exhausting. All the stimuli- the noise, the people, the smells, traffic and din, were amazing it the never ending power of the cosmopolitan masses. I remember someone trig to explain to me the difference between Chicago and New York. They had me look up at the skyscrapers in Chicago and said, “in New York, you see this as far as you can see”. Here are a few of my favorites.
