Slideshow II


Lower Manhattan skyline











 This is Ariel (L) and Paul (R). This was, for me, one of my favorite moments. We were on the edge of Central Park, resting from a long walk. I approached Ariel and asked for a photo of his horse, and he happily obliged. He was interested in my Polaroid camera, so we chatted for a minute, when Paul walked up and began to tease his friend about posing for pictures. Paul is from Ireland, and Ariel from Israel. Evidently they've been working together for roughly 25 years, and they seem to be great friends. I'm glad I got to meet them.

















Brooklyn skyline















One World Trade Center from the street.  We visited the 9/11 Museum on this day, but I didn't take any photos, inside or out. I highly recommend you visit the museum if you get the chance. It was a mixed bag of emotions, but I'm glad I went.

The window washers really earn their money, don't they? You can see exactly where they've been working...
