    I wonder how many people currenlty work at Ground Zero.
    How about the fate of 130 Liberty st ?
    (Btw I never realized it was designed by the architects of the ESB)

    We've lost so much, yet at the same time come back so far. *I really need to make it a point to visit the Winter Garden one of these days, but I don't have that much of an incentive to go Downtown anymore because now my dad works in Rockefeller Center.

    Then you should make an incentive. There's no place on earth like Lower Manhattan.

    I couldn't help but notice that 1 Liberty Plaza is undergoing some sort of paint job. It's definitely a lighter gray color. Primer or new color?



    It was terribly overcast when I took this picture, so it's not good quality, but you get the point....

    Heh, I go down to the Village, SoHo, and Chinatown/Little Italy somewhat often; it's just that I'm not sure of what to do in the Financial District itself.

    Knight, interesting photo. *I actually think that the lighter color suits 1 Liberty a lot better than the original black paint.

    Just go down there early on a Sunday morning and wander around. There really IS no place on earth like it! I took my daughter there last year and she now refers to it as "Skyscraperland".

    This is so true. On my first trip to Manhattan after 9/11 what got me was just how much is no longer there.

    People who had never seen the place before that horrible day cannot begin to grasp the dimension. It is not just the building, but also the people, streetlife and the sense of energy that was once on that spot.

    More than anything else, I hope that is the proprity for whatever get built there.

    It's so different on the weekends then on a workday. The Weekdays are bustling with people, but on the weekend it's generally pretty peaceful and serene with the towering buildings on both sides. Downtown and the areas close to it have great places to eat and clubs if you know where to look.

    Tribeca is becoming more and more "hip" as well.

    I took the ferry that runs from Sunset Park to Pier 11 last weekend, and you get some great views of the Statue of Liberty, Jersey City, and, of course, Downtown. When I actually got to Wall Street, it was depressing. It felt like a ghost town of yesteryear where everyone had moved to Jersey or Brooklyn. I went to Ground Zero, J&R Music World and the United Artists cinema in Battery Park (I think it's United Artists). I hope that the new WTC can stimulate more development, because the area in it's present state is eerie and feels 'empty'.
