Peace & Quiet – New York City, USA

When I lived and worked in NYC, life was really fun and ardent. Hard work, fun outings, photo ops at every corner, shopping galore, gourmet feasts, vibe, philanthropists, artists, impulse, novelty at each heartbeat….

And at times, it was really good to get away from the bustle. So during the week I would walk through the Water Tunnel at 48th street between Sixth & Seventh Aves for a bit of serenity. In seconds I was mesmerized and soothed by the sounds of its cascading water.

Other favorite spots for quiet in this magical city: Central Park and the Jacky Onassis Reservoir, Cloisters, Gramercy Park, Astor Court at the Met, Lady Mendl’s tea salon, the High Line, Poets House, St Patrick’s Cathedral, The Frick Collection, Sutton Place, Hudson River bike path, the round-trip ferry to Staten Island, Ravi Yoga…

Lorsque j’habitais à New York, la vie était super gaie et ardente. Beaucoup de travail, sorties incessantes, opportunités de photos à chaque coin de rue, accro du shopping, marathons gastronomiques, philantropie, artistes, nouveautés sans cesse…

Par moment, ça faisait vraiment du bien de se poser deux minutes. Alors je me dirigeais à l’heure du déjeuner vers the Water Tunnel (48ème rue entre Sixième et Septième Avenues) en plein midtown  pour retrouver un peu de sérénité. L’effet apaisant de sa cascade d’eau est instantané!
