It’s embarrassing to admit that I’ve lived in New York for nearly two decades and yet there are scores of wonderful locations I have yet to visit—the sad result of my allowing a busy life to get in the way of living, and a pinch of laziness, I must admit.

Saturdays have become a day of exploration for me, now that the weather is finally on the mend, and this last weekend I had one of my favorite discoveries to date, and I bet it will be one of your favorites too…
It was the end of 2012 and I had just landed after traveling 20+ hours from Asia. There were over 300 people that deplaned from my flight and in a fog we dragged ourselves down the long, overly bright hallways to customs. I was so tired I was almost in tears.
I know, I know, I missed the boat. The blood moon frenzy is over and I missed it. I got super busy and this image had been sitting in my camera since Monday night.

Since I’ve been posting photos that I took in the City the last few days, I felt it would be apropos to choose a New York scene for my photo covet this week.
The image above was taken by photojournalist Benjamin Lowy. I found his feed on Instagram and loved his work so much that I traced him to Facebook and then to his website, and on and on.
