These are random moments in the life of an indecent designer and the city she loves.

To read my grudging babblings about design, click the button.



And can we really measure
If we think we're any better
than that skyline that goes on and on
forever, on and on...."

Everybody in this world wants the same damned thing-
just not at the same time.

I am a female, carbon based lifeform.
I am a New York City Native.
I am a Design Professional.
I take photographs.
I also sculpt, paint, create mosaics, and play with weapons.

And sometimes, I even dance about Architecture.

What I see, is what you get.

Whenever I'm driving up to Manhattan or have gone to make my deliveries in Brooklyn and look back, it seems to be looming out over the other buildings in almost an otherworldly way. I've changed my route to lower Manhattan so I drive by it almost everytime.

I actually think the Chrysler is a much nicer building, but I don't get to see it from the west side. But I get to see the ESB from pretty much anywhere I'm likely to be. :)

bronxelf says:

Thanks. :) I'm just really lucky that I get to see it every day.

I'm glad you had a nice time here. Personally I think it's wonderful, but I'm a bit biased.

Just a little.
Maybe.

maybe *grins*

I like the contrast too, between the dark foregraound and the lighter distance

There's no place like home. Except parts of Legoland. But it's a bit smaller.

It does sort of have that post-cardyness to it.

Sean- yeah and a little blockier. But you know, you get your substitutes where you can. I'm just happy enough to be able to get the real thing.

I *love* where I live. I really, really do.

However almost *all* (with the exception of fewer than 10) of my friends live very far away. So I kinda get one or the other, most of the time.

But as to *where* I live? I have absolutely no complaints.

Looks like cool, autumnal weather, for some reason (must be the light). I can imagine pulling my collar up as I walk by :)

It's actually still quite warm here. Not enough to need even a windbreaker yet, but I'm sure that will come here soon enough. It's still quite summery, but thank goodness not as humid.

and I'm gonna be there soon!

WOOHOO!

20th Sep 2005, 16:26

bronxelf says:

Yep. I've already started cleaning the place in advance of your arrival.

So I've been told. However there is no evidence of same.

Note and reminder: Coffee on 129th Street.
Real Food, 24 hours a day.

Sadly, there is still cat hair. Argent refuses to stop shedding.

Euphro says:

It's surprisingly cool here, although I think it will warm up towards the end of the week :)

Joe says:

for good coffee and all night food, I reckon we can put up with a little house walrus hair :)
