New York, Freedom Tower
Fellow blogger Ricky Leong mentioned the other day that he was impressed at how quickly the construction of the Freedom Tower, which will stand where the World Trade Center once stood, was coming along. I mentioned at the time that I’d look for some more shots of the place. And here they are!
From Battery Park, with The Sphere close-up and the Freedom Tower in the background: the painful past and the shining, hopeful future:
I don’t know what they are covering the Tower with, but it is incredibly reflective!
It’s quite a building site. And I have a thing for cranes!
Quite an impressive sight. I was 20 when the 9/11 attacks took place and followed all of it live on television. It meant a lot for me to go there and see that America, as always, has turned its luck around.
