Sunday september 9th, 2001

Today is has been 8 years, since the twin towers collapsed, I wasn’t in my favorite city when it happened,  as I left the sunday evening before (9/09/01) , this the last picture I took from my stay in NYC this year on my way to the airport. We were gonna saty till this famous tuesday 9/11 but we couldn’t find anymore tickets to go to the Michael Jackson concert at Madison Square Garden for monday 9/10… I was in Paris that afternoon when it happens, and I felt so guilty for not being in NYC.  So here I am , in my love town, on a cold & rainy day,  8 years later and still no memorial for the victims, and no more Michael Jackson…

So here are below some pictures of  the Magical New York skyline:

    The gorilla in the shot of the Empire State Building was not part of the original photo. It was added some someone else. Any chance you could note that here and link to the original photo which is here: http://www.oncefuture.com/padams/weblog/?p=293 . Thank you.
