Gothic Night

I find monuments so exquisite when illuminated at night - this is one of the great things about cities like Paris. New York City has its small share of night time beauties and Grace Church at night is one of them (I have previously written about the church - click here). This night was the perfect gothic experience with a near full moon over the starkly lit contrast of the church spire. The illuminated world of New York at night gives residents and visitors a whole other window of opportunity for activities normally relegated to the daytime - sightseeing, strolling, biking, even socializing and sitting in parks. A city that never sleeps must keep its lights on ...

If they are visitors to the city, I suggest getting a copy of Timeout NY (weekly magazine)- it has every listing imagineable for arts, museums, shows, music, events, etc. Nothing is worse than having visited a place and finding out you missed something of importance.

Gertrudes Church in Riga looking very similar to Grace church in New york City. Isn't ?

This is an extraordinarily beautiful photo Brian. So evocative and so unlike the usual NYC ambience.
