Sunset, on the Upper West Side

Sunset, uws Photo by myself around 73rd Street and Broadway, on the Upper West Side.

The sun was setting Tuesday, as it does every day. All the buildings were in shadow and the sky looked brilliant. The delicate silhouette of a water tower was poised in the background.

Along the right, the different heights and outcroppings of the buildings (townhouses standing side-by-side) make an irregular wall.

I used to live in this neighborhood, and I much-preferred having sunsets over sunrises. ;-)
