Morning Sun on Freedom Tower
Morning Sun on Freedom Tower


This was the view out of my hotel room this morning in New York City from Pearl Street by the Brooklyn Bridge.

The tall grey tower on the right side is a residential building. The “Freedom Tower” in the back, with the spire, is actually about twice as tall at the residential building, but further in the back. It is now the tallest building in the entire Western Hemisphere.

The evening before all these towers were hidden inside low clouds. Puts the word “skyscraper” into perspective.

9/11 – 13 Years After

Thirteen years after this tragic event, here is a picture of the Freedom Tower, now completed at a height of 1,776 feet, with cranes working on the dramatic ribs of the roof of the 9/11 museum, still under construction.
