January 6th

I was away for nearly two weeks over the holidays, and although we got back on Sunday night I'd been too busy with work since then to even leave the apartment. But today I had errands to run downtown, and man -- I've lived in this city for over ten years and by all rights should be jaded by now, but every time I go out I'm reminded of how much I love beng here. I walked along Broadway toward Houston and watched the Chrysler building shine against a slate-blue sky, and I wondered how anyone could stop looking up, no matter how long they've been here.

I feel the same way about Chicago. I love those certain special places in cities when sun is in just the right spot, and this gorgeous glittering view is revealed to you. :3

Seconded. When I used to commute in for school, I'd just fall in love every time I went on the Drive, and I still do.

Ha, I feel like that about London, although I don't live there any more, and it doesn't make me want to look up - in London the best bits are when you look sideways or past things, there's all sorts of interesting dirty bolt-ons to all of the buildings and crazy little shops and old pubs and tiny gardens and stuff wherever you go.

Absolutely! I was reminded of something similar when I went skating out on the lake yesterday. Madison doesn't make you look up, but around and beyond.

Yeah, I don't stop looking up either... I feel you on the city lights against a twilight sky. It's magical and glamorous all at once...

One of the many fun things about hauling [livejournal.com profile] hoshizora around Manhattan was having such a willing partner in "OMG WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT HOW CAN THIS BE A REAL PLACE?" XD
