Visual Travel Diary

Here’s a selection of pics shot in New York City, USA from my Visual Travel Diary.

 

The glamour of it all! New York! America! Charlie Chaplin

Give me such shows — give me the streets of Manhattan! Walt Whitman

The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and beauty in the world. F. Scott Fitzgerald

New York, you are an Egypt! But an Egypt turned inside out. For she erected pyramids of slavery to death, and you erect pyramids of democracy with the vertical organ-pipes of your skyscrapers all meeting at the point of infinity of liberty! Salvador Dalí

And New York is the most beautiful city in the world? It is not far from it. No urban night is like the night there…. Squares af ter squares of flame, set up and cut into the aether. Here is our poetry, for we have pulled down the stars to our will. Ezra Pound

One belongs to New York instantly, one belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years. Tom Wolfe

When I’m in New York, I just want to walk down the street and feel this thing, like I’m in a movie. Ryan Adams

I believe in New Yorkers. Whether they’ve ever questioned the dream in which they live, I wouldn’t know, because I won’t ever dare ask that question. Dylan Thomas

I didn’t know the city at all, but I was so happy to be in New York I cried. I was so excited. Greta Gerwig

My favorite thing about New York is the people, because I think they’re misunderstood. I don’t think people realize how kind New York people are. Bill Murray

But if I had to choose a single destination where I’d be held captive for the rest of my time in New York, I’d choose the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Tim Gunn

One’s life and passion may be elsewhere, but New York is where you prove if what you think in theory makes sense in life. Miuccia Prada

I get out of the taxi and it’s probably the only city which in reality looks better than on the postcards, New York. Milos Forman

For me, New York is comfortable, not strange. Karl Lagerfeld

Everybody ought to have a lower East Side in their life. Irving Berlin

A hundred times have I thought New York is a catastrophe, and fifty times: It is a beautiful catastrophe. Le Corbusier

There is no place like it, no place with an atom of its glory, pride, and exultancy. It lays its hand upon a man’s bowels; he grows drunk with ecstasy; he grows young and full of glory, he feels that he can never die. Walt Whitman

There is something in the New York air that makes sleep useless. Simone Beauvoir
