Nuts in NY – 1

4 Oct
The Bustling streets, An open sky,
The Glorious Hudson, cruising by,
The breath taking pace, that never seems to die,
Is what makes me go, Nuts in NY
The whirling lanes, that look like a bow tie,
The Statue of Liberty, holding the torch up high,
While atop the Empire State, I wish I could fly,
Is what makes me go, Nuts in NY

The Bustling streets, An open sky,

The Glorious Hudson, cruising by,

The breath taking pace, that never seems to die,

Is what makes me go, Nuts in NY


The whirling lanes, that look like a bow tie,

The Statue of Liberty, holding the torch up high,

While atop the Empire State, I wish I could fly,

Is what makes me go, Nuts in NY

It is evident enough that this series of posts is going to be a showcase of how I murder both poetry and photography at the same time :-P Apart from the hackneyed perception of the city which is rightly called the city that never sleeps, the city of dreams and the financial capital of this planet, there is a lot that one learns about living in a plethora of disparate demography. It is mind blowing to see various cultures mingle and yet have a distinct shade of their own. Without rambling any further, here are some snapshots of “in and around” the city which have made their way to this page.

    Did you have to go to NY to go nuts??!! I thought you already were one! 😛

    That apart, really nice pics! But, there is nothing about coming together of disparate cultures in your pics though your intro made me look forward to something along those lines.. 😦
