Recently, I have traveled to various locations that barely resemble the city; the overcrowded and lively nature of the city is completely absent from these desolate areas. I would have never expected to see such emptiness in such a heavily populated area, yet I find it somewhat peaceful. It can be extremely overwhelming being surrounded by so much commotion all the time, and it is nice to know that there are places that exist outside of the usual hectic atmosphere we are all so used to. Even though these places may not be the most beautiful, they have a tranquility that the rest of the city lacks.
