A Sampling of the City

It's so hard to capture the city through the lens of a camera, but we are trying to snap more pictures as we go about our day. Here is an assortment of pictures from the last month or so.

I want to bring every kid I know to play here.

How would you feel if your van looked like this?

This is Jady's favorite fruit stand, right outside our apartment. 

This picture is from a Memorial Day picnic we had in Central Park with some of the Christians,
including several kids from a spanish church in the city.

Love this building!

This is the Soldiers and Sailors monument in Riverside Park , near our apartment.
I pass it every day on my way to work!

Last week we walked through High Line Park, an old elevated railroad line
that's been turned into a park. These modern birdhouses were one of the coolest
things we saw on our walk... and there were lots of birds hiding in the bushes!
Don't they almost look like miniature apartment buildings?

We continue to thank God for allowing us to be here, to grow closer to His saints in the northeast, and to learn of His power and grace everywhere we go. And as we near our one-year mark of moving to NYC, we can see how God has been with us every step of the way.
