Derry, Northern Ireland
A book I'm working on is set in this town.

Oh, yeah...

THIS is a view of NYC...and man does it look dense. I took it from JFK Boulevard East after work, just as a cold front was roaring in from the West and the sun had peeked out just long enough to make me park the car and run across the road to snap it. Not very sharp, since the wind was blowing and icy and I was just in a t-shirt and pants, but you get the idea.

Behind me were high-rise apartments and townhouses. No cheap rents in this area...but I can understand why. This is spectacular.

City of gleaming gold.

Love this. Have you read Stuart Dybek's Coast of Chicago? I know...different city, but in one of the stories he describes the goldness of the city along Lake Michigan as the sun rises. You photograph reminds me of that. :)

No, I haven't. I'll have to put it on my list; I love Chicago...but hate the outliers, where Google Maps will send you wrong.
