Had cousins in town today, and spent the afternoon with them. We visited the WTC Memorial and I don’t know what I was expecting but I found it…..sterile. Maybe once the buildings around it take shape and the trees grow beyond their current sapling height, it will exude a different vibe. I caught myself still trying to visualize the Towers and the plaza between them, and craning my neck to see farther into the reflecting pools placed where the Towers once stood. I left with a vague feeling of dissatisfaction and disappointment at that dissatisfaction. Then again, maybe nothing can capture the magnitude of the place and what happened there.
Even so , I took a few photos. This one is my favorite.
