A Dream trip to New York | Travel Photographer New York
Reportage from the City never sleeps
By day, since I left, seeking the words to stop the avalanche of sensations that swept me ever since I closed the suitcase. Writing about a trip you are likely to make a record of the list of places visited, and transform a post in a guide for travelers. i don’t want it…i want show you through the images the real lifestyle of New York.
But rather than suggest places to see, I start with a discovery I made. Before starting a trip do not seek what we imagined a place in our minds. Why is never so. Then you have to close your eyes, open your heart, clear your mind, breathe deeply and just after …. reopen your eyes and be swept away by all that will come.
What you Can’t miss in a trip to New York
Among the things not to be missed there are definitely Times Square with its colored signs, the Empire State Building and Rockafeller Center to see New York from above, the 5th Avenue for shoppers and Central Park to relax. But I was lucky enough to shoot for New York in length and breadth, walking a lot to discover lesser-known corners. Below I will list some of my favorite places in NY and what I recommend you see if you decide to take a trip to New York.
With the upturned nose I am amazed of the thousand skyscrapers that are like Giants to give you a breathtaking view. And with the nose down at night from the terrace of the Empire State Building to breathe the air end of 86th floor on a show that you actually block your breath for what is immense and extraordinary. It seems to fly in a helicopter shooting sequences in American movies. Would you like to stay there and wait for the dawn to see change the colors around you. But at two in the morning close and you have to stop your dream them.
Find places seen in the film, but it is only a moment, why then do you see the place you around with new eyes, and only in this way it becomes yours.
Metropolitan and Natural History Museum. I lived in the past and in the future walking a day at the Museum of Natural History Museum, where new ideas themes the film’s dinosaur. At the Metropolitan I enjoyed precious collections of masterpieces, perfectly organized, that will add beauty and make you enjoy and impress of human talent. Inside and outside!
Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo. Walk on the famous bridge to enjoy a wonderful view of the skyscrapers of Manhattan, and when you arrive in Brooklyn do not miss any areas adjacent the bridge to eat, drink or just to walk into one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of New York. It takes about 25 minutes on foot to cross the bridge, but keep in mind that you will stop often to capture a few shots with the reflections of the buildings or the nearby Manhattan Bridge. Brooklyn Heights is a really pretty area with low houses and many bars and shops; perhaps my favorite area of New York along with the area of Chelsea.
9/11 Memorial. Visit the area of the World Trade Center and the financial district, from Wall Street to Memorial September 11th, a very evocative place. At Ground Zero, there are two huge swimming pools, where the Twin Towers once stood, surrounded by two artificial waterfalls with water flowing and ends up in a black hole that you do not see the bottom. On the edges of each pool are inscribed the names of the victims of the tragedy. The visit to the Memorial moved me and I invite you to see it as a place of reflection and remembrance of those who have lost their lives in those days.
New York is an amazing city for a Travel Photographer… always moving, always alive at all hours of the day; definitely suitable for everyone, there is always something to see or do.
