WTC: Of Tributes & Towers

  Origami birds hanging at the interior exhibit of the 9-11 Memorial in Lower Manhattan. 
These thousands of paper creations were given to the US by Japan as a token of peace and solidarity.

Images of One World Trade Center under construction and the 9-11 Memorial near the Ground Zero site of in Lower Manhattan.  I was very impressed by the elegant power of the inverted fountain, as well as the emotional pull of its graceful drop.  Steel beams from one of the original towers were displayed in the windows of the future site of the 9-11 Memorial Museum.  The entire space was executed and manicured with thoughtful attention to visitors and those it honors... A lovely way to spend an unseasonably warm January night in New York City.
