At the Foot of the Freedom Tower

Freedom tower, from below
Photo by myself at the foot of the Freedom Tower, along the West Side Highway.

The Freedom Tower (seen above, right) and several of the other buildings at the World Trade Center are well underway. Construction is slow, but every time I manage to pass by, I see progress.

Enormous trusses span vertically for several floors, as you can see. The Freedom Tower is located near some older buildings, and the contrast is obvious.


By the way, Mark pointed out to me that I had another inadvertent celebrity sighting in yesterday's photo, at the 59th Street subway station.

N.J. Burkett is a television celebrity here, at ABC news. He is a news correspondent, and the ABC headquarters is located at 66th Street and Broadway.

For my other inadvertent celeb sighting was of Chris Kimball, of America's Test Kitchen, here.

Hi Kitty. I am glad that the construction of the Freedom Tower is going well. I think it will be very meaningful for all americans when it is done.
