My first trip to New York City was in 2005. My youngest son had been asking to go ever since 9-11. As we stood by Ground Zero, the tragedy of this inconceivable atrocity overwhelmed me and tears flowed. Looking at the steel cross that was left behind in this monstrous rubble was surreal.
On my second trip to New York City this summer, more than a decade since 9-11, the new One World Trade Center (1 WTC) towers majestically over lower Manhattan and is the tallest building in the U.S.A.
As I walked through the streets of NYC feeling very small, indeed, surrounded by a myriad of magnificent skyscrapers, I noticed the contrast of the marvelous old buildings and the spectacular architecture of the modern ones; a blend of the past and the future.
Hope you enjoy this collage I have put together for you of buildings in NYC. Click a photo to enlarge and scroll through.
We all want freedom.
I don’t think there’s a person on the planet who doesn’t want FREEDOM. Every creature of any size wants FREEDOM. Not humans nor animals want to be confined or controlled; it is an inborn desire to live free.
We all value freedom.
In the immortal words of Tiny Tim, GOD BLESS US, EVERYONE!
