In Remembrance of 9/11

We took a pot of mums and a small American flag over to Hook and Ladder Company 25.

Our neighbors gathered to share their stories….

and pay their respect to the fallen firemen.

 

 

 

 

 

MY FLY AROUND NEW YORK CITY

I finally got up the courage to fly in a small airplane.  The pilot lives here in my building.

A trusty little one engine Cessna.  The weather was beautiful when we started………….then a fog set it and refused to lift. We lifted off anyway.

Was fantastic to see Miss Liberty…..on her Island.

Because of 911 Security…………you can’t fly over NYC…….just around it.

The construction site where the Twin Towers once stood.  My little Lumix telephoto did it’s best to take pictures in the fog.

On the right you can see the trees that have been planted at the 911 Memorial Site.

WALL STREET…….Govenors Island is in the middle on the right.

My apartment……….in the tower in the middle of the photo.

The San Remo Towers……….towering over Central Park……….home to Steven Spielberg and many other famous people.  A nice apt there…..like Dustin Hoffman’s will run you 25mil………more if it has a direct park view.

The Tappan Zee Bridge over the Hudson River.  They are planning on constructing a new one soon.

Curving bridge into Nyack New York.  Mikhail Baryshnikov lives along the water on the left.   You can see him dance……..click below

The Majestic Towers………..Deco fron the 1930’s

The Colliseum Sports Arena near Macy’s.

And we landed safely back in New Jersey.  It was an experience…….except for that damn FOG!
