Photo by myself on Sixth Avenue around Perry Street, in the Village.
Looking South down Sixth Avenue, you get a clear view of the Freedom Tower, at One World Trade Center.
The exterior is nearly done, and the building is scheduled to open later this year. Designed by the architectural office Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, it will be the tallest building in the US, at 104 stories.
In the foreground is the canopy for the Village Vanguard, a well-known venue for live jazz.
I grew up outside Boston and watched the marathon almost every year, since we lived a few streets away from the route. The race always marked Spring, and a welcome day off from school.
My thoughts are with New York's sister city. After hearing the news, I noticed that helicopters started circling Midtown. Boston is about five hours away by car.
