Petula Clark got it right. Things are pretty great downtown.
I’ve just returned from one of my absolute favorite places, New York City. As usual, I brought back with me a new “I heart NY” shirt (this time in turquoise), a Metro Card with money left on it (one more reason to go back), a few extra pounds (darn you Minetta Black Label burger!), wonderful memories, and about a thousand new photos.
While I still have a ton of editing to do, I wanted to share an image of my favorite building in the Big Apple, the majestic Chrysler Building.

Spring showed up yesterday. You never know if it’s going to stick around these days, so I decided to get outside with my camera before it started snowing again. As quiet and desolate as these photos may seem, I actually saw more people hanging out downtown than usual. I guess a nice spring day really brings out the crowds.

Known as Detroit’s largest art object, the Fisher Building opened in September of 1928. The Art Deco masterpiece was designed by Albert Kahn and houses a three story lobby with hand-painted barrel vaulted ceilings, elaborate mosaics, and rows of
intricate and stunning chandeliers.
