I captured this view of New York Skyline from a Cruise around Manhattan Island.
One World Trade Center (formerly The Freedom Tower) Is significant in stature, in design, in its politics, its symbolism, and for the reason it was built. Thousands died when the twin towers fell, and millions were emotionally and psychologically scarred. The Freedom Tower is the replacement for what was once New York’s World Trade Center. It stands at a height of 1,776 feet, and 1,792 feet tall to the very tip of the antenna. Part of the healing process is new growth, which this tower represents.
One of the things that I loved most about New York was the way history is preserved. I saw it everywhere…the rail road tracks are maintained now as part of the High Line, Theatres, restaurants just to name a few. This snapshot of a typical street corner shows the Old alongside the New in New York.
She needs no introduction. Lady Liberty (Liberty Enlightening the World) stands proud beckoning newcomers to the land of freedom…the USA. The Statue of Liberty is an imposing figure and one of the most beautiful sights I had the opportunity to photograph while in NYC.
