To me the most interesting and inspiring thing aspect of new york is how your perspective is created by the level you exist at, physically, and psychically. most of my inspiration comes to me while traveling on my way to my destinations, New York is an amazing town for that. You can walk, take the train, be underground/overground, cross rivers, see skylines, all on your way to work. Here's a few things I see on my way to my travels around town.
