a little country, a little city

Just over the Hudson, I found one of the most interesting spots. It's located up on a hill looking right over to New York City. The views of the city are quite beautiful. Really beautiful. Beautiful & contrasting. It feels like you're in the country but can reach out & touch the city. Maybe it's the log fence & trees that create the illusion of being so far & so close. In the country & in the city simultaneously. I think it's the stillness of this spot & the sight of a city with so much activity that makes it feel like I'm in two places at once.
