While filling out an (surprisingly detailed) employment application for Ocean Media, I looked up my old address in Arcadia. I think this is maybe the most nostalgic Google has made me. Looking at the street view on Maps, it brought back a lot of memory. The fact that I can see clearly (on a screen) the places that were so meaningful to me is really awesome.
My former home in Arcadia
Church where I took viola lessons in Monrovia
From 2000-2004, these were the places I spent a lot of time and thought a lot about. It's crazy that they're so distant to me now...

There isn't really a Japantown/ Little Tokyo in New York (sadly)... but near NYU is a block of restaurants that are Japanese. I walked around the block and took photos of the storefronts.
|It's not really Japanese but it was on the street|
|It's not really Japanese- it's a library|
|Oh I see... nice name XD|
|SMH @ the caricature of Japan!|
|Clearly not Japanese... and questionably authentic|

The Highline is an abandoned railway that turned into a park in 2009. It's a great place to get a view and it's calm~
|The railway that's no longer used|
Small statues near the benches
The buildings by the highline are so modern!
Being elevated is good way to take photos!
