|The Cathedral of Saint John in Upper Manhattan|
|This small garden outside of the Cathedral was a quiet place in a noisy, noisy city.|
|Tomb of Ulysses S. Grant along the Hudson River|
|The famous Apollo Theater|
|Central Park on the left. Shee-shee apartments on the right. You've heard the term "Upper West Side?" This is it.|

New York City is a cacophonous, uproarious and flashy city. Each sidewalk is packed with hurried walkers. Each street is brimming with bumper-to-bumper cars, trucks, taxis and buses. The buildings stand tall. The subways rumbles beneath your feet. The sky is only visible if you look straight up.
The quiet captions tell the story best of the clamorous, booming images above them.
And this was only day 1.
