While I was in New York, it became a bit of a project for me to take photos of the buildings. I guess they fascinate me, because they are unlike any buildings that we have in Denmark and in a lot of other cities. They are so big and tall! I think, they make me feel a little insignificant.
Moving to Hamilton made me realise how big an impact the buildings have on your impression of a city. Here, the buildings are grey and not very architectural. I love Copenhagen and moving to Hamilton made me love Copenhagen even more. Besides shorter distances, longer days in the summer, better public transit, lots of bikes, small cafés with outdoor seating, the architecture is what makes me love the city. This entry is not about my love for Copenhagen. However, it illustrates that the buildings make up the bulk of the scenery in a city. In New York the buildings are so ginormous that immediately they make it feel like a great city and also, I think it enhances the feeling of the city being so crowded.
I hope you get that feeling too, when watching these pictures.
