Weekend in the West Village

It’s hard not to love New York. It’s magic. Everywhere you go, it looks like a studio lot, but it's real. No fakeries or empty facades here. Instead, there’s life, intellect and beauty behind every crevice.  And what a truly different place it is compared to Los Angeles. You forget the California pace pretty quickly and dive right into an atmosphere that a friend from Manhattan once described as “masochistic." But, when the moments are silent in The City That Never Sleeps, that’s when you find the real New York - when it shuts its eyes for just that one moment and breathes. There’s nothing more wonderful.
