Remembrance, at the World Trade Center

Remembrance
Photo by myself at Vesey Street and Trinity Place, in the Financial District.

News crews broadcasted live across the street from the World Trade Center, Monday evening. In the background, the exposed trusses of the Freedom Tower can be seen.

I heard that the crowds at the World Trade Center were reported to be twice as large as usual. I stopped by the World Trade Center site on my way home.

Strangely, there weren't nearly as many people as I thought. People milled about quietly, taking photos and paying their respects.

Commuters and visitors walked by one of the towers in construction. It was business as usual.

A small show of American flags. Ongoing construction of the World Trade Center is reflected in the glass.

Hi Kitty.

After the event of last Sunday, I can not imagine how you Americans must be feeling. Certainly a mix of emotions. I wish only the best for you.

Thanks everyone. It was moving to be at the site the other day. There were some relatives there holding signs regarding their loved ones, which was touching.

That day was truly surreal.
