Freedom Tower

Freedom Tower
Note 1: With One World Observatory opening on May 29, 2015, the Freedom Tower at 1776 feet tall with 104 floors is the tallest building in the western hemisphere. It replaced the Twin Towers that were destroyed in a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001. Construction began April 27, 2006.

Note 2: For those who know about the New York Yankees-Boston Red Sox rivalry in baseball, the Freedom Tower was not exempt. Unlike 2008 when a rogue construction worker buried a Boston Red Sox (David Ortiz) jersey under concrete in the new Yankee Stadium when it was being built that required 2 1/2 feet of concrete to be broken so the jersey could be removed, someone scrawled on one of Freedom Tower's beams "Yankees 1." Even thought the Mets also play here in NY, the Yankees will always be New York's team and apparently enshrined in Freedom Tower. I did not notice this until today when I was going through my photos, otherwise I would have taken a separate shot of this beam. Still for trivia and folklore, I've included the photo I did take on September 18, 2010 of the east side of Freedom Tower in its early construction phase:

WOWWWWWWW, William !! A wonderful series of fabulous pictures !!! The new tower is splendid, but we shall never forget the Twin Towers and this horrible tragedy.. Tomorrow will be the sad anniversary of the terrorist attacks in Paris, especially the Bataclan.Life goes on, but our heart keeps very heavy.

William Sutherland has replied to Marie-claire Gallet
My condolences to you and everyone in France as this painful anniversary approaches. Nous Sommes Unis especially New Yorkers and Parisians because of our common bond as victims of unspeakable evil. Considering I put up photos of Freedom Tower, I might as well add the November 15, 2015 photos I took that expressed our solidarity with France during the 13 November terror attacks.

In my opinion it's a rather ugly building, but the collage is beautiful, William, and the information great to have along with the photo.

William Sutherland has replied to Ron Hanko
It took me a while to learn to appreciate and then love the Freedom Tower. I was heartbroken when the Twin Towers came down and desperately wanted them to be rebuilt and was in a sort of rejection when a design for a different building rather than new Twin Towers was accepted.

This is a breathtaking series of a tower I hope to see one day.

I have been a "skyscrapper" fanatic all my life.... and this is so beautiful

It is a beauty that respects and pays hommage to the grief from which it was born.

Hope you get the chance, Pam! It's a unique experience and the views are breathtaking! And if you do come, I recommend early in the morning before there's much of a crowd. By mid day the lines are quite long.

Passt zu New York... aber die Skyline wird nie wieder
die gleiche sein...
2 years ago.
William Sutherland has replied to Katja
The NYC skyline won't be the same, but I hope it serves as a big middle finger and FU to ISIS, al-Qaeda and other terrorists that want to crush individuality and human rights and impose their dark ideology of evil on the world.

p.s. The Empire State Building is again the 3rd tallest building in NYC thanks to Freedom Tower (1776 feet) and the newly built 432 Park Avenue Condo complex that stands at 1550 feet. The World Trade Centers stood at 1368 and 1362 feet so despite the terrorist efforts, NYC now stands bigger and taller than ever. :)

Nous n'oublierons jamais le 11 septembre, je me souviens de cet instant, j'étais à mon bureau lors de l'annonce horrible et nous resterons marqués à jamais aussi pour les attentats de Paris, Nice et Saint Etienne du Rouvray pour tous ces crimes de fanatiques.

Belle série et merci du partage
