The Big Apple
I was capturing the steam, and this fella walked in to the shot. I ended up really liking this photo. I don’t know why.
Radio City Music Hall
View from the bridge in Central Park
The Empire State Building
Empire State Building (creepy version)
View of lower Manhattan from the Empire State Building
Another view on a very clear night in the big city
View of lower Manhattan. You can see the new Freedom Tower under construction where the Twin Towers once stood.
View of Manhattan. Crossing over to the Statue of Liberty.
“I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
One of my favorite shots
“Left behind”. Luggage from many of the immigrants that came through Ellis Island in search of a new life.
The Great Hall. Millions of immigrants came through this room in the lengthy process to become an American citizen.
Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. What you don’t know is that the bus is leaving me because I wanted to get this shot. I eventually caught up with them 🙂
A great view of the new Freedom Tower. “Never Forget”
This sphere was located in the lobby of the World Trade Center. It’s motto now reads, “Damaged but not Destroyed”. This now stands proud in Battery Park.
Famous cross streets
The New York Stock Exchange.
Federal Hall. George Washington was inaugurated here as our first President on April 30, 1789.
“So help me God!” The bible Washington used during his inauguration ceremony.
Looking up Wall Street towards Trinity Church.
St. Paul’s Chapel
The new Freedom Tower in the World Trade Center complex
9/11 memorial. The size of each of the two pools is the footprint of the Twin Towers. Each name of those who lost their lives that day are inscribed on the outer ledge of the pool. Awe inspiring!
Beautiful. Reflective. Remember.
