New York City.

The Big Apple, the city that never sleeps.

I used to live in this city.  The pinnacle of NYC lies on Times square, between 42nd street and 47th.  Every night this place transforms into a light show spectacle, people from all over the world visit daily to take in the scenery; it's like nothing you'd find anywhere else (maybe Tokyo).  There's Broadway and the shows that take residence, flagship stores that attract thousands of customers, MTV has fans lining up for the next celebrity appearance, waiting to catch a glimpse through its glass walls.  This is where the ball drops at the turn of every new year, there's intense traffic, yellow cabs, high rises and huge billboards, glamour, tourists, funky smells, homeless folks, street hawkers...  You can find them all right here.

Sandy has hit the Island.

Oh Sandy!

I'm so late posting this, but better late than never.

Were you hit by Superstorm Sandy?

I have lived hearing about hurricanes, tournedos and tsunamis, but this one especially hits home.  Superstorm Sandy really devastated Staten Island, a place I used to call home.  I still have friends and family that live there and I have wondered how they got through the storm.  It's heartbreaking to hear about people loosing their homes and their lives.
