you really don't have to worry about looking like a tourist taking pictures in nyc, because everyone is taking pictures. i snapped a few while taking an evening stroll down the high line, which is conveniently located one block from my new home!
while i don't want to upload them all, here are two pics from a little shrine i stumbled upon and showed to jay later.
this is a little random shrine to hope, with lots of little pieces of paper to write your hopes on.
and this is what i wrote!
a big thank you to whoever made this lovely shrine.
