Steaming lattes, foggy Manhattan, multicolored rain coats, posh restaurants and perhaps the never ending chaos- still got me wondering what is it that has me so perpetually in love with the city. It’s a place where you step out of your apartment not knowing what’s going to happen, or who you’re going to meet that’s going to turn your life upside down. It’s like a first love, despite of who you meet or discover, it will forever and ruthlessly have a hold of your heart. New York makes you feel like you’re inevitably doing something profound, all while being an insignificant pawn on a chessboard that never sleeps. Like a true beauty it’s so effortlessly photogenic, it virtually cannot take a bad photo. I love you New York, thank you for being enchanting, challenging, seductive and endlessly chaotic. I am still wearing that smile you gave me.
