Ground Zero - Under Construction

Ground Zero - Under Construction, originally uploaded by Shiny Things.

JRE is on holiday, with camera in tow.

Here’s a snap from downtown NYC: the World Trade Center construction site, seen from across the West Side Highway and thirty floors up.

The two pools, lined with waterfalls, mark the footprints of the original 1 WTC and 2 WTC; the half-finished new 1 WTC building is out of shot to the left (but you can see it in this photo here).

More NYC: Jeff Koons’ Balloon Flower: Red sculpture outside 7 WTC; Seventh Avenue toward Times Square at night; neon lights at the Carnegie Deli on 55th; and, bonus, a crescent moon at sunrise from 35,000 feet above Alaska.
