Paris vs New York (Short Video)

By now, many of you know the blog Paris vs New York that was then turned into a book of the same name. A visual comparison of two leading cities – what’s not to love?

While I seem to be welcoming more cities into my favorites category (Istanbul, Barcelona), we’ve still got the classics here. Enjoy the short comparison!

Also: New York has been on my mind so strongly as the city still struggles to get back on its feet after Hurricane Sandy. There’s an amazing fundraiser going on to help those affected if you’re interested. Humans of New York is a photographic census of New York, one street portrait at a time. The photos and accompanying stories have become a major highlight for me each day.

The photographer, Brandon, is doing a great job documenting the stories of Sandy’s wake and has teamed up with Tumblr to fundraise (he reached his goal of 100 K in less than 24 hours!) If you’re interested in participating, here’s the link to the fundraiser page.

All proceeds go directly to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a highly respected, family-run charity.

Otherwise, the website is worth a peek simply for the beauty. Each photograph captures the diversity and resiliency of both a vibrant city and the human spirit.

    Oh, THANK YOU!! I can’t believe I live here and had never seen HONY. I think it’s my new favorite website for NYC! And, on a more serious note, thanks for spreading the word about the fundraiser. The response from the larger community has been nothing short of awe inspiring. The generosity of strangers always makes my throat constrict with grateful tears. THANK YOU, WORLD for all the help, caring and support!! And thanks, Sion, for spreading the word!

      Hi Linda. Oh, it’s so great to hear from you! It is amazing to see people helping each other and I have been so moved, too. Also, I wasn’t exaggerating when I said HONY is literally one of my favorite parts of each day. Each time a new photograph shows up in my Facebook newsfeed is a beautiful delight.

      Thanks for stopping by and please take care!

paris (im)perfect?

Sion Dayson is paris (im)perfect. Writer, dreamer, I moved to France on – no exaggerating – a romantic whim. As you can imagine, a lot can go wrong (and very right!) with such a (non)plan. These are the (im)perfect stories that result.

Share the love!
