A recent trip to New York gave me the opportunity to finally get to know a city, that until then I have only seen in endless movies.

I had a few days to soak in the many faces and buildings, so it gave a hurting neck. I was not used to so many highrising skyscrapers. I thought to myself: Only a few hundred years ago churches have been the highest buildings, now its mostly offices and media antennas that rise to the sky in these endless giants of brick, steel and concrete.
