Well I was wandering around downtown when I ran into Alexander Hamilton. Yeah 'him' that Federalist Papers guy. This is what I likes about this town ya never know who you'll bump into on a dark side street.
Mr. Hamilton was apparently still dead, but I was pleased to meet him anyway. The photo is kinda dark, and I didn't use a flash. Maybe I'll take another shot at him, like a certain Mr. Burr in day light. Click on our hero for a better look.
Anyway they turned the "Lights" on this evening. In fact I noticed from my bedroom window a few days ago that they were testing them. Besides everything else I seem to have line of sight of downtown.
If the towers were still there they'd be a bright beacon indeed or so my new neighbors tell me.
Even with all that I forgot that tonight was 'the' night. I was headed for the subway, and happened to look up, and there they was. Heck I was tired'n hot I almost said "Fuck'it I take snaps next year."
This because by next year there 'still' won't be anything built in Ground Zero so the lights will be back for sure. Well I stayed, and took snaps aways, and here they are. Click on'em to enlarge.
