    Lights

    I love walking down city streets at night and staring at the lights. For me it's almost like being in an entirely different world. I seem to be able to find myself.

    Top Of The Rock

    I recently went on a trip to New York City. I bought tickets to go to the Top of the Rock, which is the top of Rockefeller Plaza or whatever. Supposedly, it is better than the Empire State Building, so I chose that. I ended up getting the "Sun and Stars" pass, where you go up...

    Like Bits of Bright Magic Against the Night-time Sky

    Thousands and thousands of bright yellow orbs, shapes, and pinpricks, suspended in a completely dark sky -- it is mesmerizing, meditative even.  The sharp contrasts are instant magnets, aren't they?  Like glowing sparkles at a great distance, and strong neon patterns up...

    But Not A City Girl

    I find city lights at night absolutely stunning. Night is my favorite time to explore new cities (granted I have someone with me) you get to see so much more and a lot less tourists. I grew up in a town with about five street lights... so I am amazed by little things :p

    I absolutely love cities at night.

    They have a special allure about them. I guess it's cause they resemble the stars and it's as if they are at our finger tips but we can touch them. And each light is a home of some kind. And it's a perfect example of how things aren't what they seem. Chicago Night. Circa 2006

    Soothing

    I love walking or driving around London at night and find it a great way to unwind. Recently we had a few nights when it was difficult to get our five year old son to get to sleep, and a half hour drive always does the trick. We try to point out as many things as possible to him...

    Manhattan at 11:00pm,

    Sydney at 11:00pm, Los Angeles as soon as sun has sunk over the Pacific!! Looking out over Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley at night from the Tram station and seeing the red lights from all the windmills off Hwy 10 is breathtaking!!

    Going out at night is a real stress-buster. At night there is so much to entertain that you forget your problems for a few hours or all night! There is nothing like city night life, from New Haven to Jacksonville, if it's a city there will be things to do to get it crackin! Going...

    The best time to go to the city is at night.

    It's full of energy and everything looks much more beautiful and alluring. Almost magical.

    I love to fly into a city at night. The pinpricks of light from houses in the country to the bright yellow glow of towns, suburbs and factories. If it is a city I know I try to identify all I can out the window; landmarks, roads, etc. One of my favorite pictures are the Earth...

    One of best country so far

    that I see during at night is HongKong. The building is really nice specially the glow of different light, you can seat on colon side and just look all those building. And it's really nice as well to look down in the city at night specially if your in the plane.

    I Always Explore New Cities At Night

    Whenever I visit a city I've never been to before, I MUST explore them at night. I find they take on such an interesting mystique after dark...I can always get pictures during the day, but night time is when the city really feels most ALIVE. I'm also never afraid of being out...

    but I love it! Cities at night can be one of the most beautiful sites in the world. I've been in Chicago, London, Paris, and New York at night. Loved the sites.
