911 ain’t a joke in this town

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:

Al Pacino and the Twins ( not the Olsen...)

Another obsession for tourists in NYC, is getting the I ♥ NY tee-shirt, on Canal Street or Times Square. Only tourists get that shirt & wear it in New York on top of it…
