Sunset in New York City

It's amazing to me how much stuff can be squished into a small island of 301 square miles (only 13.4 miles long and 2.3 miles at it's widest point).

I've lived here just over a year now, and I feel like I've hardly seen the island.  There's so much character on every block, street corner, and borough...

I recently took the Staten Island Ferry to shoot a some footage for a music video I'm making for a friend here in the city (video will be posted once it's complete), but I wanted to share some of the images I took while on my little outing.

The day called for rain, but I decided to head out anyways just before sunset, and the weather turned out to be more than perfect, with a beautiful sunset.
