I can look up from a New York street and, if I squint just enough to close out the skyscrapers (and put my fingers in my ears to muffle the loud American voices and honking taxis), I can see Paris (or some other American vision of European architecture of some past era). Well, just a little bit, and enough to make me realize that I need a trip to Europe, pronto!
A July spent in New York (after a June spent in New York) filled with European tourists is just digging it in unfairly. Ha ha, though, the last laugh might be ours - it's going to be 100 degrees today and tomorrow here, and it's barely into the 60s in Paris. Come to think of it, I'll take that trade!
|It's the Plaza Hotel, but the combo rooftop is definitely some kind of Euro.|
|I have no idea. Any guesses?|
|Paris, bien sûr!|
|A bit of Renaissance Italy?|
|A Bavarian Castle? Or Hogwarts?|
