New York Skyline, 1978

Continuing with my Vintage Weekly series of photos from New York taken during my first visit in 1978, here's one taken from the boat to the Statue of Liberty, looking backwards. This one took some serious editing to straighten, crop, and clean up the color.

  8. We were there in 86 for the celebration and re-opening of the Statue of Liberty, and took a boat across and were able to get similar shots (not as good...terrible point and shoot shots!) Always so sad to see the Twin Towers.
