This is my first part of two sets of Manhattan street scenes from November, also to go along with my 2nd KC Skywalk post Thursday, more NY street scenes Friday, and sometime the posting of the rest of my One World Trade Center construction shots that I took from the ground. The aerials posted to this blog can be seen here on my portfolio site.
I wanted to get some aerial shots of the new One World Trade Center tower in New York before they top it off and finish cladding it with glass. I had a little time and (barely) enough money to go this past week. These aerials were taken on the afternoon of Thursday November 10th a day after I arrived. I figure it should make at least some business sense to get progress shots of a construction project of this magnitude.
The September 11th Memorial, as I understand it, as accessible if you call ahead and schedule a visit – I think. I didn’t have a lot of time while there to investigate every detail. I took a little over 500 shots while in the helicopter above Lower Manhattan, and on Sunday when I got back to Kansas City and got the pics onto the computer, chopped that down to 100 or so, with still some more selection to do and some editing to do on a few additional ones.

It’s a good idea right now for me to collect some images of events and city scenes around KC for eventual stock licensing use, so I did a few shots at First Friday in Kansas City’s Crossroads District, evening of Fri. June 3, 2011.
