We moved into the entrance to Battery Park. This is on the extreme ocean end of Manhattan.
And there she is. We decided not to go over to her, i mean, it would have taken well over couple of hours to just go over and come back, and telephoto zindabad. The backdrop of the cranes make an interesting counterpoint.
Then we are at the East Coast Memorial. This commemorates US Servicemen who died in the coastal waters of the Atlantic during WW2. 4609 names are arranged by the defence organisation they belonged to, made in 1963 and inaugurated by John F Kennedy. Nice, eh?
Across the memorial is this statue, not sure what this is.
This is the Sphere, a sculpture which was originally in the plaza of the World Trade Centre. After 9/11, it was moved here. And there is an eternal flame on this rounded base to signify and honour those who lost their lives.
This is a sculpture and flagstaff which commemorates the decree which established Fort Amsterdam way back on 22nd April 1625. Cool beans, eh?
Tall tall buildings. We decided to walk up Broadway and check out the charging bull.
