New York City.

I spent 13 hours in New York before I headed back to Baltimore for Bane, TUI, Cruel Hand and Alpha & Omega. We arrived at 3:30am from D.C, went inside and I headed straight for the roof. For as long as I can remember I had always wanted to sleep on a roof top in New York. I think it stemmed from listening to so much rap when I was younger and watching so many movies with guys like Method Man and other various rappers in them based in and around New York. Anyway I woke up as the sun was just peeping over the horizon and stood up and looked out towards the middle of New York, I could just make out the middle of the city through the morning haze, I took a few photos and lay back down and fell asleep. When I awoke a few hours later Old Dirty Bastard was being blasted from a window across the street, it was warm and sunny and I just lay there watching the pigeons flying around above my head. I was in love with the fact I got to live out a fantasy I had had since I was a teenager. And the straight New York gangsta rap made it so much more authentic.
One thing I noticed which was so consistent with all the movies I used to watch was that all the people had pigeons on their roofs as pets in cages, they just flew around in big packs above my head the whole morning.
Please excuse the photos as well they are crude but it was so bright and I was so tried I could barely open my eyes haha.
