Midtown Manhattan: Favorite NYC Photos

St. Patrick's Cathedral, Midtown Manhattan, NYC

The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world. F. Scott Fitzgerald

Last week, I spent six wonderful days in New York City. I traveled there for a full week of meetings for work, and spent all the in between hours out and about in Midtown Manhattan. A few nights, I had wonderful dinners with friends–the best refreshment for the soul. I walked Madison Avenue in the rain, just to have the chance to see the windows while there. I enjoyed a bit of time in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade revelry which marches up 5th Avenue on March 17th. And, I had the immense privilege of attending a formal gala inside the Waldorf Astoria, listening to author Candace Bushnell speak for a breakfast (a future post here), and Ron Howard in conversation about his amazing career at the gala.

What is it about New York City that I love? The energy, the lights, the people, the sunshine and long shadows cast down from skyscrapers, the life that hums there. I caught New York City as a teen, on my second trip there, when I walked the long streets to go-sees for the modeling world after my foot had gotten in the door and pulled me into. There is something about New York City, especially Midtown Manhattan, that speaks of history and tradition, and also of the new and the modern. Some photos from my week there in that wonderfully unique place in the world:

  1. What a great adventure! Fun to see the photo of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade–I’ve heard much about it, but have never seen it in person. Don’t you just love the architecture of great buildings?

    1. I do — I love the architecture of NYC’s great works! It was fun to get to see some of the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. One of my favorite cities. Thank you, Kim!

  2. Great pics of a great city ! In sunshine or rain – NYC has atmosphere, and you especially captured it in the pic of Central Park. The library is one of our favorite places. It’s gorgeous lit up at night. Bryant Park is a nice place to sit and people watch.If you didn’t make it to the Met this time – the next time you’re in town have a snack at the cafė in the the American Wing – enjoy it in front of the huge windows looking out on Central Park. The city has so many special memories for our family. Bryant Park is where my son and his wife first exchanged “I love you.” The Brooklyn Bridge is where my son-in-law proposed to my daughter. And Waldorf Astoria is where my husband and I spent an even more special anniversary – having been upgraded to a suite with a lovely view of St. Bartholomew right below. Speaking of the Waldorf – you look very glamorous in your beautiful blue gown.

    1. You and your family do have some incredible legacy connections with NYC, Barbara! Wow. I have been to the Met, and love it — it wasn’t open when I had chances to go this time. But next time! 🙂 Thank you for your kind words, and thank you for stopping by and sharing your connections with NYC!
