The madness of 9/11/01 made me aware of what NYC is about besides the people. The architectural beauty of the high risers, old and new. You can walk down any street in Manhattan and find a building that has its own life. Look up when you visit, and remember every building you look at is probably 1/3 to 1/2 the size of the WTC. I took all these picture with just a 1.6 digital camera. As you walk along the avenues, and streets, you notice others looking up. If you stop to look and take pictures, people stop and look at what you are photographing. You feel a sensitive nature to the high rises. It still is breath taking, even more so now. While we were there the Empire State building was blocked off to all traffic. Bomb threat, finally our bus stopped and I got out to take pictures. No one was alarm, people went about business. NYPD kept the traffic moving.
