Mom & Dad in New York [Day Three, 12/22/07]

The last time we were together as a family in Manhattan, the twin towers were still standing. This time around, we visited the office of a friend of mine who is working on the engineering of the upcoming Freedom Tower and neighboring buildings. What you see here is a model what Downtown will look like in 2013. The office overlooks construction happening now in Ground Zero.

After our visit, we toured some other downtown sites like Trinity Church, St. Paul's Chapel, and Financier patisserie for hot chocolate. In the evening we moved all our stuff from my apartment in Harlem down to Gramercy Park, where we stayed for the rest of our vacation.

A pigeon I made friends with in front of Federal Hall.
