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.

The Wed. morning Nov. 9th flight from KC to NY – Laguardia.

    Evidence of humans’ extraordinary capacity to overcome adversity. Thanks, Eric, for making it possible to see this happening.

    These are outstanding. I’d actually love to hear more about this experience because when I go to NYC, I’d like to do this. Perhaps a post or shoot me an email to how I can look into it?

    Really awesome!
