Bridges and Tunnels

I was standing on Pier 17 and took the pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge. I really enjoy the bridges. Whether by car, train, or even taxi, it is wonderful riding across and looking at the city and the ocean. On Pier 17 , there is shopping, dining outdoors or indoors, and live music!

Ready to listen to the acoustics of your voice or favorite musical instruments? Visit the tunnels in Central Park or even the Subway! There have been some of the most famous and infamous individuals playing or starting off right in these tunnels and throughout New York City. Give a shout, sing a chord or two..You will love how it sounds inside the tunnels. There are many people who try, so don't feel embarrassed !!

There is a certain serenity and beauty in the tunnels at Central Park. They are truly wonderful. I remember getting caught in the rain, and the tunnel sheltered me. It was splendid to meet a few tourists and Locals hiding in the park like I was that day. Enjoy a walk in through the parks of New York City and let your mind escape.

Ground Zero

This is Ground Zero in Manhattan, NYC. 2004 -There was still a great deal of damage. I was amazed to see such a sight after almost three years. We have all been made aware of 9/11/01.
The ideas for a the New Freedom Tower were under works. To this day, there is still much construction going on. I posted these to show that even after disaster, a new dream can be created. I can imagine a great deal of people made new goals and new dreams that day. I can only hope that they have each achieved and continue to achieve these goals and dreams. Making them a reality. I will continue to post items about New York City. It truly is a beautiful place.
-I'm sorry I do not have better pics. We did not get much of a view at that time. The memorial of the Twin Towers was posted on several boards along the road.
