1978 NYC

Here's a view you sadly can't see any more, from the Empire State Building back in 1978, when I first visited New York City.

  3. working in Manhattan at the time was exciting. lots of great things going on. had an absolute ball living and working in NY then. 2 years later i was a suburban housewife and mother. i often think about the photos that many people have of the skyline with the towers standing so tall against the sky. i don't think anyone at that time ever imagined the sadness of 9/11. it is almost like the loss of innocent times. great choice for N post. made me think back to a time of happiness and sadness

  4. My friend Al,

    The rainbow is the harmony from the "land" of your feelings.

    Your photo album is the university of timeless life.
