A Rainy New York (setting) by Jake, age 11


A Rainy New York, by Jake

They say the city never sleeps. I can't sleep either because of the exciting things having fun without me. I sprint as fast as a cheetah outside onto the vibrant streets. The rain drops are exploring the city with me. As I glance around I see bright, neon lights flash and grab my attention. The air is filled with the smell of delicious hot dogs. I am amazed by the bustling city glistening infront of me.

Wow Jake! You have painted a picture of New York that is enticing, even in the rain! I loved the personification (... the rain drops are exploring this city with me...) I think you may have a future career in travel writing maybe?! Thank you for sharing this with us.
