Lower Manhattan, taken from the Staten Island Ferry
I had the pleasure of working in Lower Manhattan for over a decade. I worked at the tip of Manhattan -- very close to this scene -- for almost six years, before our office moved to Queens in 2005. I still miss this view every day. For years I got to see the sunset over the Statue of Liberty, and the sight never got old or stale. There were some very rough days after September 11, but the neighborhood has flourished and has recovered, too, from the damage from Hurricane Sandy.
Our featured blogger of the day is my blog buddy, Terra. She is a talented writer and her blog is delight to visit. I'm going to make a pitch for the terrific book on motherhood that she co-wrote. It's a perfect gift for Mother's Day. You'll find the details on her blog.
I'm raring to go with the blog challenge and get my posts on the same day as everyone else again. I've got a fun "M," and though it's only half a block off Broadway it's got a connection to the Louvre. Any guesses?
Wishes for a Magical Monday!
