Today, with everyone so plugged in with their phones, computers, TV’s and countless other devices, there comes a time when you physically and mentally need to unplug and have a little peace and quiet. I usually find my peace in those little moments when traveling ~ once you’ve gone through the hassle of security and are finally seated on the plane and next thing you know you’re flying high above the clouds with your headphones plugged in and a good book or fashion magazine in front of you.
Lately, I haven’t traveled as much so I’ve been finding peace in my own neighborhood (read: not in my apartment. As I’m typing this post the kids above me are running or wrestling, a car is blasting its music, and another car is honking at the traffic that can’t move because the light is red!). Anyhow, back to the post at hand. While NYC is known as the city that doesn’t sleep, there are pockets of places and times that do take a nap and provide some peace.
Take a look…tell me this isn’t peaceful! Photos taken in Ft. Tryon Park (located in Washington Heights/Inwood) and along the Hudson River and Westside Highway.
