Photo by myself on the FDR highway, along the East River.
The Manhattan Bridge connects Manhattan with Brooklyn.
A little further south, toward the right, is the Brooklyn Bridge. Both bridges carry subways and pedestrians across the water.
I took this photo of the Manhattan Bridge and the East River from a cab, while getting home one night last week. It's been that kind of busy lately, which is good and bad.
Mark and I are flying back to New York on Monday. The jolt of fresh air, sunshine and beach breezes has been so healing.
We've encountered dozens of people exercising outside. The people here are generally so friendly and kind. They smile. They walk their dogs, enjoy nature and embrace life.
What culture shock! If you ever visit New York and notice that people are pushy and surly, just know the stress can get the best of us.
I wish everyone a wonderful week ahead.
