Hallways always lead to light, just as there is always light at the end of the tunnel. This picture is of the hallway on the 19th floor I live in. I feel a special connection to this hallway because it’s specifically what I always think about when I think back to NYC. I am not exactly sure why but maybe because I always used to come here all the time during vacation and now this is the hallway I have to pass through to get home. I love this hallway because it looks like it’s taken out of a movie and it makes me feel like I am not really living a reality. However, I dislike this hallway because it always smells like illegal substances and there is also a sadness when I watch children from the 19th floor play quietly in the hallway’s floor.
This is where I reside; NYC. This is the city of chaos, madness and dreams. This picture was taken near time square during rush hour. This is very important to me because it resembles the world that I am currently forming a part of and how it contrast so much from the world I was a part of in the Dominican Republic. What I like the most about this community is that there is an endless amount of diversity amongst the civilians and an endless amount of hope of someday becoming something great that the world would be proud of. However I dislike the fact that everything in the city is rushed, as if the way the city is run revolves around an unbreakable rule of mass production and effectivity.
Tall buildings and finite amount of windows; this is the place where I live. This picture is of the same exact building where I sleep and spend all my free time at. This community is very important to me because it’s where my aunt and uncle have opened the doors to receive me as I continue my studies. What I love the most about this community is how talls the buildings are. They make me feel so small yet so protected, as if like the buildings are leaning towards to hug me. This feeling of ‘feeling small’ would intimidate many but to me it makes me realize how small humans are in comparison to the world. What I dislike about this is the care that is not given to the building by the residents of it… really taking away from it’s beauty.
