January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

I wonder how much a square foot of land costs there these days . . .

23 Sep 2013 5:54am

@Ronnie 2¢: A quick search yielded this: "Average price per square foot for New York NY was $1,330, an increase of 4% ..." How many sq ft would you like, Ronnie? ;D

@tyan: The financial district covers a large area, of southern Manhatten Island, with Wall Street being in the center of it. The new Freedom Town is a short walk from Wall Street.

Great shot Judy! You got the shot at a perfect angle. I am heading to Manhattaen in two weeks to do a photo shoot.

First time I've seen whats risen from the ashes of that infamous day, it certainly gives a big finger to anyone who thinks terror will win.

23 Sep 2013 2:30pm

@Jeff: Here's a twilight image of the Freedom Tower that I like.
I pray you are right on your terror statement!

Don from Spokane, United States

@Ruthiebear: Oh, good ... I'll look forward to seeing it from a different angle, Ruthie. You may even get a shot of the apartment building we call "Susan's" (where our daughter lived) in Battery Park City, right at the edge of the Hudson River.
