New York City - Summer Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa
Summer in New York City:
...popsicles melting on tongues like summer snowflakes, ice cream kisses under trees, sand between toes, ocean waves, afternoon daydreams, roller-coaster laughter, running barefoot through fountains, fire-escape barbecues, freckles on warm skin, open fire hydrant dancing, shaved ices on corners, stoop gossip, bicycles against trees, clothesline clothes swaying against the skyline, ferry boat waves and river lullabies, evening breezes, and sunsets that steal their way into hearts...
This was taken on a boat in the East River overlooking the Manhattan Bridge and New York City skyline in lower Manhattan.

New York City Skyline - Sunset over Midtown- By Vivienne Gucwa
New York City sunsets are songs.
They remind you of all of the times
you ran with open arms
into a city that embraced you back
on the whisper of a breeze
in a skyline reflected in glistening eyes
wide with hope.
carries the promise
of a new song.
This image was taken from the top of Rockefeller Center (Top of the Rock) during an absolutely gorgeous sunset. The view is of the skyscrapers and rooftops of the midtown Manhattan skyline looking south including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and 1 World Trade Center.

New York City Skyline - Financial District Skycrapers at Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa There's a series of moments that linger between day and night that linger a little longer in the summer. The sun slides down through the clouds towards the city pouring its soft light onto the water. The skyscrapers soften their time-worn facades as they lean in towards the last fragments of the day. And the spray from the wake of a boat dances with the sun's light. --- This was taken on an absolutely stunning summer evening with the A77 while on a boat in the East River as the boat pulled away from the skyline leaving an illuminated wake behind it. This is the skyline of lower Manhattan in the Financial District. To the right (out of this scene) sits the Brooklyn Bridge. ---

Williamsburg Bridge and New York City Skyline at Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa Moments are vessels that contain: sparks, magic, effervescent happiness, lingering sadness, red-tinged anger, bittersweet joy all waiting to explode if and when that point in time is visited again. There are moments that exist somewhere between the excited beat of the heart and a welled-up tear in the eye. They are the chills that run up the back of the neck and the small smile that can't be contained when their memory is nudged by a sound, sight, scent, touch. It's the way the light was shining through the bridge as the boat pulled away under a sky blue with hope as the sun set and the lump in the throat subsided momentarily. It's the way the water looked as it rocked the boat gently like a lullaby as it drifted away from the sunlight that poured its light onto the surface of the water. And it's the way everything seemed pointless in comparison to the way the clouds gathered over the city: hopeful tufts of smoke emanating from the sun's extinguishing fire... --- This is a view of the Williamsburg Bridge and the Lower East Side as seen from a boat on the East River during sunset. In the distance sits the skyline of Brooklyn in Dumbo and the Manhattan Bridge. ---

Brooklyn Bridge and New York City Skyline - City Lights- By Vivienne Gucwa
It's interesting how photos take on a life of their own with long exposure photography. This was taken on a cold night recently as a storm was rolling in. I waited patiently in between stubborn sustained wind gusts as the water from the East River lapped at the edges of Brooklyn Bridge Park gushing over the sides every so often as if to foreshadow what the clouds were hoping to do to the city.
As storm clouds moved in and the increasingly darkening sky turned various shades of purple and blue shortly after a relatively subdued sunset, there were a few minutes of calm silence. And as the water played nice and the wind decided to run its own marathon elsewhere, 4 seconds were there for the capturing before the skies unleashed their watery exclamations in the form of rain.
This is one of the more popular vantage points for photography of the Brooklyn Bridge. The skyscrapers belong to the Financial District. Prominent structures and buildings include: the Woolworth Building, New York by Gehry (at 8 Spruce Street), One World Trade Center (also known as 1 WTC and/or the Freedom Tower), Pier 17 and the South Street Seaport.

New York City Sunset - Skyline- By Vivienne Gucwa I never really get tired of this view. I know I have expressed that sentiment many times but it's absolutely true. There's something incredibly breathtaking that occurs when you are above the rooftops of the city. It's as if the city shrinks below a vast sky in a huge universe and everything that once seemed impossible seems effortless and within the realm of possibility. It's so easy to forget that sort of thing when you live in a large city like New York City. When you are in the thick of it all, it can feel like the you are alone in a never-ending maze of cavernous streets as everyone else's dreams and hopes fly past you at the speed of light. But when you take yourself out from the middle of everything and change your perspective, it's as if the city holds its arms out to you beckoning you to come back and put your own dreams out there so they can spread their wings and fly up to the sky towards the horizon leaving a trail of hope in their path. --- This was taken from the top of Rockefeller Center (also known as Top of the Rock) and it's probably one of the most popular views of the New York City skyline since it includes the Empire State Building and the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan. The view is looking south towards One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower and 1 WTC) and the skyscrapers of the Financial District. ---

New York City Skyline and Central Park - Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa Summer evenings are when the city smolders as the sun paints the clouds and the night sky waits just another hour longer to dance with the last remnants of the day. --- This is a view of the skyscrapers of midtown Manhattan and Central Park from above looking north towards upper Manhattan. I took this at the end of August on a gorgeous, sweltering evening. I made it up to the top deck of Top of the Rock (30 Rock) just as this spectacular sunset was making its way across the sky. It's hard not to feel overcome with emotion when the summer sky puts on one of its late summer sunset shows. When it happens, the city is bathed in an other-worldly glow as the lights in the buildings twinkle on like stars and the sky and the impossible all seem to melt away into an infinite horizon full of endless possibility. ---

New York City Skyline Sunset and the Brooklyn Bridge on a Summer Evening- By Vivienne Gucwa Summer evenings in New York City weave their own spell when summer night skies slide onto the city through the sticky-sweet haze. The skyscrapers cling to the sunlight wrapped up in the glow and hazy anticipation of just one more kiss of light. --- This was taken at the peak of last summer from a roof top in Brooklyn over looking the skyline of Brooklyn Heights, the Brooklyn Bridge and a very hazy lower Manhattan skyline. I was shooting with a camera I wasn't at all used to shooting with and the temperature was hovering near 80 degrees at night with nearly 100% humidity. The air was thick as molasses and the heat was unrelenting but it was an absolutely gorgeous summer sunset. ----

Skyline Sunset - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa Late summer and early autumn sunsets in New York City are intensely beautiful. The city seems to cling to every bit of sunlight through a haze that sleepily hangs low over the urban waterfront. This was taken near the end of a four hour long ferry ride back and forth around the East River in the late summer. There were barely any people on the ferry that day and I spent entire rides just taking note of the sun's descent in the sky. When this moment occurred, it was so brief and fleeting and yet so dramatic in its intensity as the sun dipped towards the midtown skyline grazing the skyscrapers that I barely even knew if I captured it properly since the waves were kicking up in the river and the boat was swaying up and down over the waves. By then, I had gotten my 'sea legs' and knew the exact way to stand and counter the movement with my camera in my hands. And the sun-kissed skyline drifted away from view and descended into the twilight of evening. --- This view is of the New York City skyline in midtown including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building during the last moments of a sunset as seen from the East River. ---

New York City Skyline and Empire State Building - Top of the Rock View- By Vivienne Gucwa
When the night pulls its cobalt blanket over the city
the lights flicker like stars
in a magnificent universe.
And the world pauses for a minute or two
enthralled in a reciprocal gaze
of epic proportion.
The hour right after the sun dips below the horizon is one of the most enchanting hours of the day. It's not quite day and not quite night but it's a blended mixture of the two. There is no better place to witness this transformation in New York City than 70 stories up in the air on the observation deck of Rockefeller Center (known colloquially as Top of the Rock). After feeling the elation that comes with watching the sun set over the city, all of the city's lights come into view twinkling little by little until they all seem to build up to the most intense crescendo of illuminated splendor.
This view is looking south towards lower Manhattan past the Empire State Building. This is the result of a 30 second exposure completed by placing my camera on one of the ledges (while tethered to a very, very still me with gloved hands in pockets barely breathing for fear of moving the camera/camera strap). The Top of the Rock and Empire State Building are rather strict about their no tripod policy. Sometimes you can catch a kind security guard who doesn't mind a gorilla pod but for the most part, you have to get creative if you want to take super long exposures. In this case, since it was so ridiculously cold, there weren't many people on the deck and I staked out my ledge during the pre-sunset time period (the sunset was stunning!) taking photos while waiting for this particular moment. There is a special clarity that comes with this time of year. While this spot is a popular vantage point in the summer, there is also a lot less visibility due to the thick summer haze that hangs over the city in the warmer months. In the dead of winter though, it's crystal clear if you catch a clear day (another rarity!).
Locations of interest in this shot include: The Empire State Building, One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower or 1 WTC, the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan Bridge, the New York Life building (one of the buildings with a gold top), Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower.

The New York City Skyline at Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa Late summer sunsets over New York City are the most intoxicating. The bubbles from the wake of boats in the river go right to the head. And the sun's trail of gold kisses on the water lead straight to the heart of the city. --- It's this time of year when I start to miss late summer sunsets like this in New York City. When I need to clear my mind, I head to the water. Sometimes I go to the beach to listen to the waves and sometimes I go to the river to gain perspective on everything going on in my life. I don't know what I would do if I lived in a land-locked area. On the day that I took this photo, I rode the East River Ferry for 4 hours straight (the day-pass is incredible) watching the light stretch across the sky and cityscape changing subtly every hour until the sun burst over the city like a supernova. The waves were perfect that day. The East River Ferry stops in both Manhattan and Brooklyn going from 34th Street in midtown, down to Wall Street's Pier 11, passing under each of lower Manhattan's bridges and then across to stops in Brooklyn and Queens connecting at piers in DUMBO, Greenpoint, Williamsburg and Long Island City. ---

Williamsburg Bridge Sunset - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa When the sun sets in the winter, its light pours over the city like the glow from a distant bonfire with scattered light illuminating the grey, steel edges like embers strewn about in the wind. --- The Williamsburg Bridge is a favorite of mine in lower Manhattan. It tends to be overshadowed by the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge when it comes to popularity. This is probably because its pedestrian walkway is completely enclosed by a metal gate and because it isn't in super close proximity to the other two bridges (although one could argue that the pedestrian entrances to all three bridges are in walking distance to each other). However, it definitely lives up to its National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark status. Its architecture is incredible and the views of the New York City skyline and Brooklyn that can be glimpsed from either walkway are stunning. ---

Flatiron Building Sunset - Autumn - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa Late autumn in New York City has its own brisk beauty. Cold air sharply punctuates the end of every wind gust and the sun retreats earlier and earlier every day. Autumn clings to December in the brief moments before the trees drop their leaves to the ground for good and every afternoon sunset reaches through the sharp cold with its lighted fingers in one last dramatic attempt to bring warmth to the city. --- This particular view is of the Flatiron Building, one of New York City's unique and classic skyscrapers, as seen from inside Madison Square Park during autumn. ---

Autumn Light Through Trees - Central Park - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa
In autumn, sun drips down like melted gold on tree limbs decorated in the finest foliage.
The earth, chilled by the memory of winter, holds onto the sun’s light with hands outstretched as each ray slips through its fingers like fine sand.
As bitingly cool air brushes past flushed faces, every bit of sunlight clings to the earth like embers fallen from a powerful fire.
I love the brisk quality of light in the autumn especially in the evenings. It's as if the sun is trying to penetrate through past winter all the way forward into spring.

The New York City Skyline and the Statue of Liberty at Sunset - Under the Brooklyn Bridge- By Vivienne Gucwa
Every evening, the sun slides slowly down along the sky gleaming and floating above the city.
Reaching through the clouds to look at its reflection of liquid gold in the water below, it pauses.
And in those brief moments, it's as if the earth has stopped revolving just long enough for the sun and the city to kiss.
This was taken while on a boat in the East River passing under the Brooklyn Bridge. The skyline is the lower Manhattan skyline featuring the skyscrapers of the Financial District and Pier 17 at South Street Seaport. To the left in the distance, sits the Statue of Liberty.

Beach Sunset - Coney Island - Brooklyn - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa The sun whispers to the ocean in golden-voiced tones on evenings like these.

Coney Island Beach at Sunset - Brooklyn - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa Coney Island is the site of my favorite New York City beach. The Rockaways in Queens have become popular over the last few years and while I have fond memories of the Rockaways (since I grew up in Queens) Coney Island tugs at my heart in the best way possible. There is nothing like standing on the old pier that juts out into the Atlantic ocean while watching the waves crash onto the shore as the lights on the Wonder Wheel and the Cyclone twinkle in the distance like a tiny city of candles. When I was much younger, I moved to New Mexico for a year and a half. I was in high school at the time and many fellow students would ask me what it was like to live so close to the ocean and I could never quite explain what it was like at the time. I was always at a loss for words. It was what I grew up with and it was hard for me to imagine life without access to the ocean. Years later, it’s still hard to fully put into words what it is like: breathing in salty ocean air, viewing the night sky while listening to waves, the feel of cool sand on bare feet, jumping through the ocean with wild abandon. I think I keep taking photos in an attempt to further explain what the ocean means to me. Isn’t that why we write, take photos, paint, dance, create music and engage in a variety of other artistic pursuits? It’s to put into form those feelings and experiences that remain otherwise formless. ---

Manhattanhenge Sunset Overlooking 42nd Street and Times Square - New York City- By Vivienne Gucwa There is nothing quite like the intensity of seeing the sun spread it's light like wildfire through the streets of midtown Manhattan. The red light glows with the ferocity of a supernova showering its splendor onto the urban landscape. In honor of tonight's Manhattanhenge sunset which may or may not be hidden by storm clouds since New York City's weather has been highly unpredictable and stormy as of late, this is a photo I took exactly a year ago during last year's Manhattanhenge. The buildings in this photo are the buildings in Times Square (you can make out the Madame Tussauds sign). Manhattanhenge is a semiannual occurrence in which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The term is derived from Stonehenge, at which the sun aligns with the stones on the solstices. It was coined in 2002 by Neil deGrasse Tyson, an astrophysicist who is the director of the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History. ---

Sun Fire - The New York City Sunline in Silhouette at Sunset- By Vivienne Gucwa I used to refer to sunsets as sunfire. Those first sunsets burned through my retinas into the innermost recesses of my mind. Clouds poured over the smoldering sparks of orange like thick plumes of smoke and before the sun extinguished itself, it burned the brightest of any flame in existence. When the sun sets over New York City, it’s as if a thousand flames dance across the sky, leaving embers scattered across the skyline in the wake of it’s burning: like a fevered dream scattering its remnants across the mind before the deepest of slumbers. I used to refer to sunsets as sunfire. I still do. ---
