Thinking of NY

A serene view at Central Park.
By the noon the strong wind just stopped abruptly. It didn't subside it just has cut it out. Very strange. Storm alert is still on  but rain stopped and it's strangely calm. Down town Toronto is dealing with the damages, mostly fallen trees and electric lines, lots of households experienced power shortage but it's a small aftermath  compare to disaster in NY. So today I feel like share a few images of the city I love. My tiny tribute to a Big Apple.

The CNN reports are frightening and the courage and dedication of very brave reporters exposed to harsh elements, freezing rain and winds, some standing in the raging water above their knees is incredible. They kept the world updated.

 The quiet corner of NY Public Library. 
A delicate china is ready for an elegant tea for a few special guests. 
What the patrons will be talking about? 

NY has the most elegant and stylish shop windows in the world.

 The breathtaking views from Rockefeller Tower Observation Deck.
 Manhattan ship is proudly sailing towards ocean.

How small is our planet...How fragile and helpless the almighty humans can be.

Tragic times. People lost their lives, my heart is going for them and their loved ones. 
The damage is colossal but there's no doubt the resilient city as NY is will spring back as beautiful as ever. A Big Apple has been bitten severely. I wish new yorkers strength and courage.

May everyone stay safe.
Till next time.

  1. Bonjour Natalie. Thank you for stopping by chez moi today. I am glad you mentioned your post or I might have missed it. This is a fitting tribute to New York, a city I have always loved. I am not too worried about her. She has been through so much already, and she will recover. I worry more about the people of New Jersey. Their lives have been turned upside down. What a terrible week this has been! I am happy you and yours are ok. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
