I know what they mean when they say New York City is magical. And crazy. And wild. And incredible in that whirlwind, in-your-face way. I took this picture when I visited NYC in 2007 (the second time that year) and the scene just jumped out at me: cab in motion, people crossing the street, and Starbucks looming in the background, symbolizing the fuel of the city. To me, this is one of the components that defines NYC life.
