New York City…We Love Your Architecture

The first time I stepped foot in New York City was in March of 2002. My long-time friend and firefighter/paramedic, Steve Cowman,  along with over 100 members of San Diego Fire & Rescue, decided to fly to New York and present the FDNY with monies they had collected for their fallen brothers and families. When first denied access to march in the city’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the NY fire fighters pointedly exclaimed, “If they’re not marching, we’re not marching.” It was an incredible experience I will never forget. The sky scrapers were also in attendance that day, gently looming over the procession of its citizens who, for the first time in six months, were allowed to celebrate and laugh again. In honor of New York’s resilience and strength, here are some beautiful images of iconic architecture captured by the people who love this wondrous city.
