I think its hard to understand the city that never sleeps until you walk around it at 5:30 in the morning.
Last night, someone mentioned watching the sunrise from the Brooklyn Bridge. We agreed that it seemed like a worthy venture, so I was woken up bright and early by Megan standing at the foot of my bed. However, we were so sleep deprived that we ended up at the wrong subway station, but good ol' new york has connections available everywhere so we just took the train up to 14th st and took a connection to the right train.
This morning pretty much affirmed every single reason why I decided to come to New York. From our point at the bridge we could see the statue of liberty, downtown, the empire state building, the chrysler building, you name it. At one point, I turned around to see Midtown and I realized that I live here. This amazing city is my home.
Even at 6 o'clock, the city was alive with the sounds of people. Runners going to Brooklyn and back, people just getting in for the night. And there we were, four people in a sea of thousands.
Now back to bed.
I'm sorry for not blogging about my adventures! This month was absolutely crazy with midterms, going home, and just general mayhem. I'll try to blog more this month!
