It was worth waiting for.

Nearly a year since we’ve been back to the city.

And, of course, we’ve heard nothing but bad news. Surge upon surge – in virus, in crime, in prices.

All this time we’ve held our breath as to how we would find it upon our return.

And?

It’s positively breathtaking.

NYC has many faces. It’s been wearing one of its prettiest for us these past few days.

The oakleaf hydrangeas are blooming in Central Park.

And the planters along Central Park South are trying to do their part…

Dante Park is prettily edged.

And Lincoln Center is all dressed up for summer.

In general, things are looking pretty sweet.

Broadway is back!

And everyone and their dog is out enjoying the beautiful almost-summer evenings.

Oh to be young in the city…

But never mind, even us oldsters can enjoy being at the center of the universe.

We want to scoop up every morsel of it we can. Especially the Milos Special, enjoyed with a view of The Vessel.

We may be in our sunset years, but the sunsets here are exquisite. How we love this beautiful jewel box of a city. So, so great to be back!

“The lightning spun your garment for the night

of silver filaments with fire shot thru,

A broidery of lamps that lit for you…”

from “The Lights of New York”
