We took a ride on the bike path beside the Hudson on Sunday --a beautiful sunny afternoon. I had inadvertantly put my camera on some weird setting so the photos are a bit fuzzy --anyway....
there really is a great deal of water between Manhattan and Jersey. People have been talking about the possibility of storm barriers like in London, but since Manhattan is an island this seems a rather Quixotic idea.
The Freedom Tower continues to grow and, architecturally, is much more attractive than the Twin Towers ever were, though obviously it would be better if we still had them.
Lots of tourists on boats in the harbor.
And a fisherman looking out to Lady Liberty.
A panorama of the above.
A pier that they have been fiddling with for 13 years at least!
Birds atop the depressing sculpture about drowned people.
South Street Seaport is utterly wrecked. There are lots of disaster aid trucks under the FDR Drive. This one from Texas.
And this one from Wyoming. (Don't think I ever saw a Wyoming plate before.)
All the shops in the Seaport area are closed including Abercrombie and Fitch and Ann Taylor and the Yankee Store and all the restaurants.
Not to mention the beer place.
A work crew arrives at two on a Sunday afternoon
while aways up the street it is business as usual at Starbucks.
On the way home we went past St Paul's Church. You can see the Freedom Tower in the background.
