When you view New York City from above, it's hard not to get caught up in the rush that occurs the moment your eyes attempt to account for the grandiose scale of the city.
How do you make sense of that split second that your heart beats to the rhythm of the streets below?
How do you keep your feet on the ground while your soul attempts to soar through the city, swooping between the cavernous buildings?
New York City is a study in contradictions and confirmations.
It is a city that either inspires flight or plants you firmly on the ground like the skyscrapers that rise up from such depths.
