My home town is filled with hills, one advantage of which is the view from the top. East is always New York City which you can see from many different places. This one is from Eagle Rock Reservation and the 9-11 Memorial. On that day in 2001 people swarmed to the area so it had to be blocked off. Afterwards, many flowers, memorials, touching notes and remembrances were left there so it was the obvious choice for the Memorial. My Mom and I drove down my street as the horror was unfolding and saw one tower up and burning; when we turned around to come back the tower was gone. The airspace over the entire USA had been closed but we heard a plane overhead which was scary. My Mom being a WWII baby recognized the sound and said, “That’s a bomber”. We heard them occasionally for months afterwards until they finally disappeared.
Now our NYC Skyline view includes One World Trade Center - more well known as the “Freedom Tower”. It’s the tallest building in the center of the photo and was built on the World Trade Center site where the towers and other buildings once stood.
