Real Life Captured #232: New York City! Part Two (9 photos)

in travel •  2 months ago 

Hey there friends and followers! In this "Real Life Captured Series" I do my best to bring you exactly that; the real life captured from destinations all around the world! After sixteen years of travel experience my favorite thing to do is walk around! That's right, I simply like to go to foreign countries and walk around. I observe (and now photograph) the people, food, culture, way of everyday life and bring it to you in this "Real Life Captured Series".

New York City! The Big Apple! The City that Never Sleeps! Love it or hate it, there is no place quite like it on planet earth. Personally I can only take so much of any big city including this one. Fortunately it was the perfect amount of time for me; an afternoon taking in this stimulating environment as I set out to get some great Real Life Capture Photos.

I only had a few hours with my backpack on my back. I started on Manhattan Island arriving on a bus from Albany New York. From the Port Authority Bus Terminal I walked for several ours taking me through Times Square, to Carnegie Hall, up 5th ave past Trump Tower, to Central Park, before finding a metro on Lexington Ave that got me on my way to Laguardia Airport where I had a flight to catch down to Ft Lauderdal Florida.

The energy on the streets of Manhattan was electric! I thoroughly enjoyed taking photographs here. You snap your camera take a look at the photo later, and you can see things you simply missed while in the moment. There is so much going on it's frankly remarkable. Compared to the small towns I've visited in countries like Peru, Laos, and Ukraine in recent years; this high paced environment is almost being on drugs! Now come along and lets have a closer look at this very exciting "Real Life Captured" photo series of New York City!

There are quite a few people in the set of pictures who are either taking selfie or someone is taking a picture of them.. I think they are tourist. And this only shows that there's a huge diversity in that city that never sleeps! 😁😂

Huge diversity of people indeed. Thanks for the comment and have a great day!

Thank you. Keep posting! 😊

You certainly captured the hustle and bustle of New York! That saves me the trouble of going back there. Lol! I used to live just outside New York about 40 years ago - back when the Twin Towers could still be seen prominently on the skyline. I have not been back there since, but I have had no reason to. Thanks for the memories! The city certainly is intoxicating still. New York! New York!!

You are so welcome. Yes, I remember those towers. I was inside of them about a month before they came down. New York is very much an intoxication place. Thanks for the comment! -Dan

Yes, we all have such horrific memories of that sad day. We were scheduled to fly to the UK that day. It was awful. My family was panic stricken because they didn’t know if we were in the air yet, and phone lines around the were jammed! Ever since that day, I make sure everyone has a copy of our total flight schedule!

Wow! I was in university in up-state New York. Many people from NYC attended SUNY Albany. Some people I went to school with there had family members die. The day the world changed forever. Thanks for sharing your story. Wishing you the very vest from Ecuador!

So sad for those families. Yes, the world changed for ever in most places, but some places remain pretty untouched. We were surprised that there was no security when you were flying between the tiny islands in French Polynesia. You just walked out to the tarmac and boarded the plane, just like in the olden days!

You remember I was there around one month ago. I would say it is a "Futuristic square" due to its large number of widescreens. You're right there is no place like that on earth :)

I remember. Yes, it's a pretty darn futuristic indeed. Large screens everywhere!
