One of the more exciting things to see in New York was the, still under construction, Freedom Tower, an amazing building, standing tall above the skyline, reminding us that we can rise from the dust, hold our heads high, and be a great nation.
Being in New York was as exciting as being in some famous old European country. There is so much to look at. Over several decades I had seen many scenes of New York in movies and television shows, but never felt that I would actually go visit. Walking around and seeing the famous sights was such a thrill. That goes also for seeing the New York Stock Exchange.
As we were walking toward Stanton Ferry and crossing a street, I glanced up to see the new Freedom Tower. I stepped back a few steps to take a couple of shots. Satisfied that I had gotten the shot I wanted, I looked around to see that I was blocking traffic. The driver didn't even honk.
The sign in the foreground caught my eye so I decided to use it in this cityscape. While the message of the sign may be insulting to all the beautiful blonds, I did find it funny. You may want to click on the picture to enlarge it enough to read the sign.
