So after Sunday’s trauma (first world variety) when I just couldn’t get the photos to load, it all went smoothly as possible tonight, when I gave it another go. As far as I can tell I did nothing different, but you have to accept “user error” is usually involved in computer glitches.
This part of the visit mostly covers views of the financial district and surrounding areas. With views from the Brooklyn shoreline. It starts with a few from mid town, from an earlier day’s walking. And it starts with that remarkably thin Flatiron building. Someone told me Spider Man climbed up it!
The 9/11 Memorial. Quite simple and incredibly powerful, with the names of all those who died. To those whose names are captured in this photo, I pay my utmost respect and offer my deepest regrets to them and their families and friends.
The new buildings are elegant and defiant. New York will not be defeated.
This is so sad and beautiful. Again, my best wishes to those affected.
Seaport is pretty much the oldest part of New York. Or should I say, New Amsterdam.
Into the heart of the City, the justice building. I was reading recently that a lot of people made a lot of money taking a very long time to build this in the 19th century!
Walking over Brooklyn Bridge. Astounding views.
What can you say about this, really? Utterly iconic.
On the Brooklyn shoreline. I love just saying that.
As the sun goes down…
Night falls – back on the bridge.
