I am often asked what I like about New York. The list is long, but what I enjoy most is the energy that makes this city 100% alive day and night, night and day.
If you are open to discovering New York with unprejudiced eyes, you cannot help but be either overwhelmed or, on the contrary, to feel empowered by the energy running in the city’s avenues and streets. Everything goes fast, and you’d better keep up. Not everyone likes it. For those who do, like me, and perceive that the city’s energy is a rush of life pushing you to live yours to the fullest, there is no better remedy to boost your spirits.
Some people find peace in a forest or by going fishing. I did by going for a walk in the greatest city in the world. I miss these walks, I miss the energy. I miss New York.
The following pictures were taken on my last day in the city last July.

And love is not the easy thing…
The only baggage you can bring
Is all that you can’t leave behind”
