Last week I was sent to New York for work. A whistle-stop breeze through the Big Apple for work. Work or no work – the camera went too so we could catch sights while I was shunted from one mission to the next.
The thing that struck me about New York is that it is a city of vistas. Long straight gridded roads that intersect neatly and at each end there is a surprising vista. I like that! A city of tidy roads and interesting perspectives, completely unlike the weblike network I’ve come to know in London. Oh and the skyscrapers are REAL sky-scrapers. So tall! Much taller than what I’ve seen in London or even Tokyo.
