It was a profoundly moving experience to visit both the memorial pools (the largest man-made waterfalls in the world) in the footprints of the original World Trade Center towers and to look up at the staggeringly beautiful new monument to the persistence of freedom and the American ideal. The new World Trade Center 1 is a gorgeous building, and a great deal of love and care has gone into crafting the monuments at Ground Zero as well as the amazing 9/11 Memorial Museum. Definitely a highlight from a recent extended visit to NYC. I’ve done my best to capture both elements in this shot along with a sunstar off the new tower from the morning sun.
