Reminds me of some of the older renders of the building when the lights focused on the spire sent a beam straight up. Great picture.

I visited New York a year before the attacks and the silhouette of the Twin Towers from the East River will never disappear from my mind.

There was a graffiti tag underneath the Amtrak railroad tunnel on the west side I saw recently that said:
"There was no such thing as yuppies back then scootin around in their SAABs and BMWs eating fake gourmet food and seven grain bread. Most of us grown up on wonder bread with peanut butter jelly or bologna..."
I particularly like this quote because of the sincerity and the emotion in it.

They are still on now at 3 am and will stay on until Sunrise. Last year, they shut off at Midnight.

Unfortunately, 1 WTC forgot to do anything. The spire was lit in white and the beacon was off. There wasn't any red and blue coloring anywhere on the building either. The ESB, the Helmsley Building, and the Bank of America tower all had patriotic colors, and still do now at 3 am!

World Trade Center Chronicles: I compiled 27 of my videos made over 4 Years into a single clip show that shows how the tower came to dominate the skyline.

I know this'll dates me, but this picture made me think of an old episode of Pinky and the Brain where they build an entire replica of earth out of papier-mâché and lure the globe's population over with free t-shirts. Classic.

In that last photo the smoke reminds me of 9/11.



Taken by me at sunrise.
