New York City Visit in 1986

Ten years later I took this Shorpy photo at the same location.

I admit

... that I used to highly dislike the World Trade Center buildings as a very young one. I thought even back then that they were bland and so boring. But they grew into me as I got older. I began to appreciate Mr. Yamasaki's work. I wanted to visit them when I ever got to see NYC back in the 90's.

And when in 2007 when first visiting NYC with my hubbie and friends they had the idea to go see the site of the destruction. I totally hated the idea of that kind of tourism. I just stayed at the hotel. I remember the exact time and place I was on that day. It's burned into my memory.
