Then and Now
Last week work took me to an eighteenth century church on Staten Island. This week I was in lower Manhattan, surrounded by skyscrapers.
The tallest building in the photo is The Woolworth Building. It was also the tallest building in the world when it was built in 1913. In 1930 it ceded the title to 40 Wall Street. The link has some wonderful historic views of the building.
The building under construction in the background is the Freedom Tower, which is on the World Trade Center site. At night it is lit in red, white and blue. It is actually about three blocks from where I was standing to take this photo. I was pleased to get the sign for the 9/11 Memorial in the same picture. The pumpkin display in Tuesday's post is just to the left of the bus stop sign.
Please stop by tomorrow and Saturday. We are having a coffee party in honor of National Coffee Day on Saturday, September 29. There will be a fun, yummy coffee giveaway on Saturday, thanks to my sweet friends at Nescafe.
Wishes for a fun, yummy Friday!
