Shane and I decided to pay a visit to the World Trade Centre in NY. Here are some of the photographs of the site. We went around the entire site, so there are a fair few photographs here. If you are bored and dont want to read my captions and want to go straight to the slideshow, then click here.
Came out of the subway and saw this sigh. It should look good when its constructed, but why water falling down a hole? A symbol should be upwards, reaching back into the sky.
Loads of cranes around the place. Still construction going on.
This little open place was full of construction workers. Uniform of jeans, heavy shoes, t-shirts, hi vis vests and extraordinary helmets. I took some photographs of these helmets. Full of interesting decals.
Now towards the end of Vesey Street, looking up on the building on the right hand side.
Security gates and Shane.
Shane trying to peek through the fence to take some pics.
A FDNY truck parked on Trinity Place. It was a rather interesting experience, walking around here. This is hallowed ground and the people definitely showed a difference in behaviour. But perhaps once the construction is done, then the feeling would be better, because it was a sort of a reality distortion field. You get the feeling of massive death and destruction only from some angles and some places, in other places, its a heaving mass of people and machinery. Strange and wonderful. So many people died here, so many of my friends and colleagues died here. Sighs. I whispered a small prayer to their souls.
The next essay is the walk to Trinity Church.
