One World Trade Center

Arriving at the hotel yesterday and pushing open the window blinds I am met with this imagine. A flood of emotions overtake me within an instant, the structure is gorgeous and it's greatness and grandeur is undeniable and yet I am saddened as well.  The birth of this building the result of such a terrible tragedy. 

The strongest emotion however by far was pride.



We visited the 9/11 Memorial yesterday.  Below is a picture of the North Pool.  The Memorial is beautiful and done with great class and respect to those who perished that day.  And despite construction at every corner I found the place very peaceful.



From the very base of WTC 1



And of course Lady Liberty from the Stanton Island Ferry as we headed over for dinner.
