Adventures In “The City”

I have been to New York City a few times and loved every trip there. Each trip has had an agenda and I've always left wishing I could have seen more. This trip was for that reason. To see, to do, to shop, to experience. In the short time I was there I had the opportunity to see and experience many things. It was just what I was hoping for. Not to mention I really needed the break from work and all of the "drama" that happens there on a daily basis. It was a much needed diversion from my boring day to day working only life.

There hasn't really been much to write about here on my Vox Blog. My life just doesn't seem that interesting. Or it could be that I don't feel I have much to offer. But having taken this trip, I now feel a bit better about writing. Like I have something to share that others my find interesting.

I was actually surprised at the feelings that came over me when I saw our Statue Of Liberty in person. It's size and the history behind it was enlightening and sometimes emotional. We had yet to get to Ellis Island but could see it in the distance. I imagined what it must have been like for the many that endured the trip from their homelands seeking refuge and a better life.

 

This was just above the Ellis Island main building's facade. It struck me how visual symbols can communicate to those of any culture. I have yet to get the lenses I need for better pictures and to take my class to learn how to get better use of my camera but having said that, I think this came out pretty good.

Time to get ready for work. Will post more later.

  1. This is wonderful!!I'm happy to hear that you had such a marvelous and moving visit to NYC, and Thank You for sharing your photos.

    Did you know that the crown of Lady Liberty is to be reopened to the public on July 4? (That made my blog just a couple weeks ago.) It will be packed. Packed! For crowd control and security, they'll be allowing only a small number of visitors in at a time.

  3. Thank you fellow Gypsy! As soon as I have more time I will be sharing some of my sisters photos too. NYC is one of my favorite places to visit and if I thought there was a snowballs chance……I'd live there. Much as I loved my secluded Mountain life and serenity, there's just something about NYC that captures me.

  4. We used the Audio Tour and it was mentioned. No doubt that will be a very busy place then! Though I have to say that even if it was opened while we were there I don't think I'd have the stamina to go up that many steps. I don't feel 53 until I'm forced to push myself like that!
