Photographer's Note

Here is one last photo from my visit to the World Trade Center site last October. It痴 a small section of the base of One World Trade Center, also known as the Freedom Tower.

In my previous post, I wrote that One WTC has 104 floors, and it reaches a height of 1,776 feet (541.3 meters), making it the tallest building in North America. The first 185 feet (56 meters) of this massive tower is a windowless, concrete base. It was designed that way for safety reasons. The base is covered in glass pieces attached to stainless steel panels. LED lights behind the panels illuminate the base. From the 20th floor upwards, the square edges of the tower痴 base cut away, shaping the building into eight, tall, thin triangles.

This is a view of the side entrance; the security guard was directing tourists to the front entrance where they could buy tickets for the observation deck. People kept coming in and out of the frame, so I chose the photo that was the least cluttered. You can see the bright colors of the LED lights, and some reflections of other building on the site.

On a side note, COVID numbers exploded here in NY the past few weeks, so I haven't taken new photos in a while. Hopefully I'll be able to get out again soon...

In the WS is another view.
