I Love My City

When I was a little girl, around November 1 or 2 every year, my father would bring out the calendar and make us each pick two days that we thought would be the biggest snowstorm of the year. If we hit the day, he bought us a treat.

He always chose the same days-- his father's birthday and Valentine's Day.

This year he would have won.

Yesterday at work, I had to take a photo of the weather in NYC for an update to our official channel. Maciej took one look at the photo and suggested I go out every morning, to the same streetcorner, and take a photo standing in the same place, in the same direction.

So last night, in the middle of a snowstorm, I went out to find the right place to stand. This is the result. Sometimes I think I live in the most beautiful place in the world.

If any of you want to see my updated photos of Times Square daily, you can see them all here

If any of you want to go take pictures at my streetcorner, go to the southwest corner of 7th Ave & 42nd street. You will see two manhole covers. Stand on top of the one that is closest to the building and point your camera at the street sign. If you email them to me with the date and approximate (within the hour) time of when you took the photo, I'll post it to my channel.

Guh. I want to move to New York! *pines*

I didn't realise you worked in theTimes Square area! I was around the corner from there two weeks ago, and I used to work - long time ago - on 44th & 6th, then later at NYNEX on bryant park. I miss the area loads....

Ah, man! If you're in town a lot, let me know if you want to grab coffee or something the next time.

Yeah, we're on 38th & 8th so I'm just a couple blocks from there. The pics are right outside my subway entrance.

I used to live down in Chelsea, now I'm on the UES but I'm going to try to move soon-- haven't decided where to, yet-- just closer to the office so I don't have to change trains in the morning. But the location of my office is awesome-- I love being able to pop out of work and pop into the movie theater.

I probably will be back for a week or so in June or July, so yeah, it would be great to have coffee then!

Gaaaah, I love New York so much!! Every time I go there I never ever want to leave.

BECAUSE I LIVE HERE.

Actually, that is why I live here. It is like all alive all the time. I love it so much!

Nice pictures. But I wish the snow was white :(

What do you mean, white snow? Who ever heard of white snow?

This has nothing to do with what you posted but I wanted to tell you that dave and I were bored while driving and started making up stupid lyrics to the Chicken Boo song.

"You wear a disguise and you beat up guys, but you're not Batman you're a chicken boo." -me

"the unanswered cries from between your thighs, you could go in your pants but you don't want toooo~" -D

I say yours wins! Dave's doesn't quite stick to the traditional theme and BATMAN CHICKEN BOO IS AWESOME.

You do live in the prettiest place in the world. I miss New York City like whoa while I'm here.

That's a great idea, the picture thing. I'm bookmarking it.

You can sign up for netomat and subscribe to it! Or just subscribe to the RSS feed!

That's a pretty fantastic idea. :D

It really is. Kris and Maciej and I had more ideas for it this evening!

I wish I could live in NYC, even though I've never been there.
Probably the closest for me would be living in San Francisco (which I really hope is something possible).

You should definitely visit New York. It's not the same visiting as it is living here, but I think this is one of those places everyone needs to see once in their life. Growing up so close to the city and then living here, it's hard sometimes for me to remember just how extraordinary a place this is.
