Roof-Top (New York) (Rational)

I really like these roof-top views of garden life from somewhere over the Upper West Side. The buildings on “fire” are across the Hudson in New Jersey at sunset. As per Rilke from somewhere in the Duino Elegies, Hiersein ist herrlich. The entire urban organization is “rational.” I don’t think Critical Theory gives these bourgeois kinds of things their due.
